T. Rose and B. Blossom by Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.


A seed that grew and was cared for by love

Watered through the years with words of wisdom

Nurtured to emerge to a colorful burst of life

But a sadness has grown from unfulfilled dreams

Colors and fragrances now just part of my memories

Struggling to see the beauty as a part of life’s garden

Have glimpsed the growth and watered it from time to time

But wasn’t there to talk or to have any influence

To gaze on her essence from afar filled me with pride

As she gained age with sun and rain I anticipated with excitement the flower she would one day become

The Rose has transcended before full maturity

There is another flower

Shared the garden with The Rose

Nurtured with the same water of wisdom and sunshine love

Sharing the beauty and hue of sky when a storm has passed

I yearn to be there to water and help care for her and watch this flower fully blossom……
