"A FADED ROSE"
A sunny summer morning,
A steamy MAY night,
Begain with LOVE and Hopefulness;
And ended with shock and fright.
As we woke and we found out
About the day before,
The shock set in; the grief began
And we felt it more and more~
The anger at those who caused this,
And the ones who didn't care,
Still felt by some, it hasn't stopped
Because this isn't fair.
How different would our word be
Had this event not occurred.
The shock we never would have felt,
The crying never heard.
If this rose hadn't faded,
If this rose hadn't died,
Would we still all be happy,
And would we not have cried?
Or had she lived, would things be worse`
Not for us, but for her?
Her death horrific, yet merciful,
A blessing for the girl.
We haven't quite figured it out,
But one day we will know.
Without a doubt we'll all find out
And in our knowledge,, grow!
