Rosebud

Remembrance Poems

The world may never notice
if a rosebud doesn’t bloom
or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon,

but every life that ever forms
or ever comes to be
touches the world
in some small way for all eternity.

The little one we longed for
was swiftly here and gone,
but the love that was then planted
is a light that still shines on

And though our arms are empty
our hearts know what to do
every beating of our heart says,
“We will remember you.”
