A Rose Beyond the Wall

A Rose once grew where all could see,
Sheltered beside a garden wall.
And as the days pass swiftly by,
It spread its branches straight and tall.

One day, a beam of light shone through
A crevice that had opened wide.
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
Then passed beyond, to the other side…

Now you who deeply feel its loss,
Be comforted – the rose still blooms there-
Its beauty even greater now,
Nurtured by God’s own loving care.

Sorry, there are no details found...

I know that Jackies heart and spirit carry forward forever in her son Cody , knowing that a part of Jackie will forever continue making the world a better place and the sun shine just a bit brighter as she always did gives me peace amidst the chaos of this time of loss we all share.Fly fast and high my love to land softly and peacefully….. where the sky was once your limit the Stars are now your playground…. your love and beauty will forever be reflected in the eyes of those bold and brave enough to look up into the stars searching for their dreams and wishes as you have done.

Sleep softly Jackie this is not death its the beginning of a new life one day we will meet again. I will hear you when the wind blows when gentle autumn rain falls in circled birds in flight, in the soft stars that shine at night and in the diamond glints of snow . Till we meet again
