in memory of my Grandpa..... not exactly great literature though

Life is like a rose,

It’s a thing of splendour

It grows tall and strong,

It brightens any garden.

Yet when the rose is gone,

Its perfume is always remembered,

Bringing memories of summer days,

It is never forgotten.

thank you, Mary. It was one of the few things i have written where i had to *think* about the lines - i mean most of my stuff just pops striaght from my feelings onto the page.
