A Found Poem!

So I was cleaning out some papers and came across a poem that I wrote out. As I was reading it, I thought it was kind of sweet. When I got to the bottom I realized I had written this poem!!

I had no recollection of doing it, so I am sharing it with you now, please be kind as I am not a poet :)

The Rose of Life

It starts as a seed in the womb of the earth
Relying on another in order to grow
To come in to the world bringing joy to all around
To sprout forth as a seedling from the cool soil below

It grows to become a bud, ready to bloom
To spread its petals and show its personality
Each one so different and so unique
But all filled with the same pureness and quality

It looks so innocent and smells so pure
Attracts all the bees and butterflies too
Its color is vibrant, energetic and kind
And sparkles in the sun with a sprinkle of dew

As it grows and matures each and every day
It gets prettier and prettier to all that care
For with age comes wisdom and the ability to know
How to handle problems even though life is not fair

A rose is never perfect and neither are we
For life has its thorns we all must face
They're prickly and at times make us wilt
But friends are like water, it only takes a trace

As the cycle completes and the flower dies
All the loved ones cry and mourn
The beauty is etched in everyone's heart
Have no fear, for who remembers the thorn

That is so true. I pray that my days of grace and sweetness out weigh the prickly ones. Wendy

Wow! I reckon you can claim to be a poet, I love that poem, full of meaning and "profoundness" (if there's such a word). I'm so glad to hear that your roses are still blooming, thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, they are greatly appreciated. I love your new blog background by the way.
