Rose Petals of Peace
by Katie Smith

For Charles

My Precious Charles,
A memory rose for you is blooming
like the love you send me each day
The soft floral scent of heaven
surrounds me as I enter this sacred garden
Each petal on your rose is like a symbol of peace
The peace of your free spirit that fills me with warmth
Your memory will forever live on within me, Son

All My Love,
