ONE RED ROSE!

Have you seen the little cards that have saying on them , that you carry in your pocket? Well as mom and I was going though her stuff we found a few of them and here is one that I thought someone would like to see! I wish I knew who wrote it. because I would thank them for writting it!

ONE LITTLE ROSE

I would rather have one little rose from the garden of a friend

Than to have the choicest flowers, When my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have one pleasant word in kindness said to me Then flattery when my heart is still And life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile from Friends I know are true Then tears shed round my casket. when this world I've bid adieu

Bring me all your flowers today, whether pink or white or red I've rather have one blossom now Then a truck load when I'm dead!

Hi and thank you for stoppping by my blog earlier. I love this poem. It is so apropos for me right now! It was important for me to see my grandma alive one last time - so not being there for her funeral isn't so devastating to me... She is not in that casket anyway but far beyond it by now. =)

It has been said that many rich men still have their first dollar, but a truly wealthy person still has their first friend.

There is no price that can be placed on friendship.

Happy belated birthday.

Thank you so very much.... My mom passed away February 9, 1992.... This poem was her favorite, she often recited it.... I could not think of a few of the words and have been searching for them all these years.... Again I thank you for an undiscribable feeling in my heart... Susan M. Smith
