Roses by the Garden

As I watch them everyday,

So beautiful and red,

But growing so slow I say.

Today I saw the blossom,

Tomorrow I’ll see the bloom.

I’ll also see the roses,

By the garden as beautiful

As anything can be.

Finally I’ll get to see them,

All grown and red I’ll get to see.

I’ll only see them for a short time,

But next season I’ll see them again.

God Bless all Roses!
