The Rose

Beyond The Wall

Bereavement Poetry

Near shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God’s free light,
Watered and fed by morning dew,
Shedding its sweetness day and night.

As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall
Through which there shone a beam of light.

Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear or pride,
It followed the light through the crevice’s length
And unfolded itself on the other side.

The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before,
And it lost itself in beauties new,
Breathing its fragrance more and more.

Shall claim of death cause us to grieve
And make our courage faint and fall?
Nay! Let us faith and hope receive—
The rose still grows beyond the wall,

Scattering fragrance far and wide
Just as it did in days of yore,
Just as it did on the other side,
Just as it will forevermore.

A. L. Frink

Safely Home
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!

Prospice is a poem about facing death

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,

My First Christmas In Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights, like Heaven’s stars, reflecting on the snow

The Rose Beyond The Wall
Near shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God’s free light

I Measure Every Grief.     

Emily Dickinson
