The Sweetest Of All Roses

A Collaboration Tribute To Linda’s Mother

The Sweetest Of All Roses

My dearest departed mother, on this day I honor you;
Named Rose, for your pure beauty, the sweetest I ever knew!
You filled me with the gift of love, so deeply for me you cared;
You taught me and enriched my life, in the joyous years we shared!
.
Then you left me far too early, not yet fifty-one years old;
A victim of your environment, harmful chemicals there did lull!
You fought hard to beat the cancer, that your pancreas contained;
But you floated off to Heaven, Angels weeping in the rain!
.
To all, you left behind your legacy, of never ending love;
I feel it shining down upon me, from the Heavens up above!
So know that I am thinking of you, on this Blessed Mother’s Day;
“The Sweetest Of All Roses”, in my Soul you’ll ever stay!
.
.
You left too early
But your love stayed behind
In my heart and Soul

Hey Linda!  You are a great poet too!  Your mother is beautiful in this picture. She looks like a movie star. Pretty smile. Very kind of you to honor her. I know you must miss her a lot. My mother has Alzheimer's disease and is starting to lose her short term memory a lot...but she still remembers the past like yesterday. I hate seeing her struggle to remember. I am just thankful for whatever time I have left with her because she is so sweet and kind natured. I adore her.  Thank you for sharing your mother, Rose with us.  xo Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

Thank you so for your very kind words.  I miss my mother terribly, and she was such a positive influence in my life.  I just wish she could be here so that we could talk and hug.  I am so sorry for your situation with your mother.  Treasure every day that she is with you and try to make special memories with her of this time.  Happy Mother's Day to you.

All my love,
Linda xxx
