Rose Beyond the Wall by A. L. Frink

A rose once grew 
where all could see, 
sheltered beside 
a garden wall, 
And as the days passed 
swiftly by, 
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

 One day, a beam of light 
shone through 
a crevice that had
opened wide ~ 
The rose bent gently 
toward its warmth 
then passed beyond 
to the other side

Now, you who deeply 
feel its loss, 
be comforted ~ the rose blooms there ~ 
its beauty even greater now, 
nurtured by 
God's own loving care.
