~ An Hour With You~

Pure sweetness for her children,
Yes Mother’s our desired rose,
Such beauty is God-given,
For her love ne’er leaves nor goes.

The love of God in her heart,
Is as a lustrous light shone,
Still gently lighting o’er us,
With sweet fragrances our own.

Our lives will ne’er be the same,
Without her touch and bright smile,
Our desired rose so gentle,
Has been with God quite a while.

A Happy Birthday Mother,
It’s that day again for you,
We love and miss you so much,
A Happy Mother’s Day too.

We still see you everywhere,
Your familiar scent is here,
God's roses that seem to glow,
Hold your presence ever near.

We sense you with us Mother,
God’s way of being gracious,
Your love and beauty flows sweet,
Our desired rose so precious.
