Rachel has kindly sent me this poem, so very beautiful, I want to share it with you
The rose beyond the wall
A rose once grew where all could see,
shelterd 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 towards its warmth
then passed beyoud 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
