The honor of "One Rose"

8350f0da.png

                          “Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come.”

                                                               ~ Song of Songs 2


“Bring me one rose”

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

A small request when you arrive

Who can know the gifting power?

Love is spoken by one flower

One sweet rose for one sweet Mother

From a son or from a another

With one rose you show you care

With one rose much love you share


Lovely colors … roses wear

Thoughtful meanings that they bear

Yellow for a faithful friend

Faith you have … but cannot lend

Pink … your love will never end

Red as scarlet LOVE words penned


With one rose … a message send

With one act … a heart can mend

Precious kindness … time allow

LOVE is shown with one rose now

Loving acts reflect His Grace

Lovely visits face-to-face

Knowing that I live alone

Nice to hear your voice by phone

That you come and hold my hand,

Demonstrates you understand

Might you say a prayer with me?

Prayer sets my burdens free.


When this earthly life I leave

Please do not for me then grieve

God’s love & grace I do believe

Eternal life I will receive

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

Once in heaven, I arrive

In Christ's Presence … I will thrive

You and I are saved by Grace

We should all His Love embrace.


Do not rush to my resting place

The wind will there your tears erase

Though loving heart & hands have laid

Fragrant roses upon my grave

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

A grave with flowers … death can’t hide

A life well-lived … bears love inside

I wrote these words to help you see

With these words I close my plea

Bring one rose from you … to me

~ In His Light, Fay Vietmeier ~

This poem is in honor of a loving son, John Falvo … in memory of his mother who often made the request: “Bring me one rose while I’m alive”

And in loving memory of my “Mom” who loved flowers … especially roses.

“One rose” can be a small, thoughtful gift or perhaps a random act of kindness ... lovely to bestow.


"You can complain a rose has thorns or rejoice that thorns have roses." ~ Pablo Picasso 

“Flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.” ~Chinese proverb

I write: “In His Light”~ Fay Vietmeier

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … I enjoy bantering with other BEES … your feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My caring nature makes me an advocate. My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I am a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of beauty … I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf. I’m a “heart-to-heart” communicator.

Thank you so much, dear Fay Vietmeier.
:With one rose … a message send With one act … a heart can mend" Dear Fay Vietmeier- your lyrics are like flowers. They are filled with fragrance of emotions and passion. I have always said that short lyrics have more power and fragrance in them. Your lovely poem is an example. “Flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.” ~Chinese proverb. No wonder you are filled with fragrance and generosity dear Fay. I send you a flower.

Fay, Thank you for reminding me of a son's duty. Although my Mom is gone the calendar is fast approaching the day she passed. I'll purchase one rose in her memory on Valentine's day. And so it goes.
