The Flower

The flower much like we humans is one

Of Gods beautiful creations.

It starts as a seed in the womb of the earth

And develops until it is ready to come out into

the world to show it's beauty, color and fragrance.

During its life-time it adorns very many functions

For many occasions that without its beauty

would not be the same.

However, it has a very short life span, as it

Grows old it begins to wilt and can no longer

Stand erect.

Then when it has served its earthly purpose

Giving pleasure, it dies.

Many women have been given the name of

some of these flowers.

You , my dear Aunt have been graced with

The name of one of the most beautiful, colorful

and fragrant of them all.

The Rose!

And if that isn’t enough:

Regina means “Queen”.

The Blessed Mother is at times referred to as “Regina” because she is the Queen of Heaven.

And May is the Blessed Mothers Month And the month of your birthday!

We wish you God’s blessing and

A very Happy Birthday.

A poem, prayer and truly heartfelt sentiment written for Rose in celebration of her birthday.
