Roses of God

(Poem for My Brother Jose)


Enjoy thy Time

Second by Second, Minute by Minute

Let not thy Chance, Chance away

For thy Hands of Time to hold and stay


Enjoy thy Touch

Finger by Finger, Kiss by Kiss

Let not thy Flesh, conceal away

For Pleasures of Night do hold and stay


Enjoy thy Sun

Day by Day, Beam by Beam

Let not thy Warmth, to fade away

For Passions of Heart do hold and stay


Enjoy thy Rain

Drop by Drop, Inch by Inch

Let not thy Sorrow, do keep away

For Arms of Comfort do hold and stay


Enjoy thy Presence

Moment by Moment, Faith by Faith

Let not thy Soul, be turned away

For God of Love we Beckon to stay


To Thou and Thee

O Roses of God

      Thank you. Wrote for my brother in-law and wife. He is brother to my late wife, the one implied in Holy Kisses.

      Thanks. Want people to appreciate every minute, every touch, moment together, especially during difficult trials, knowing it is God who brings us the beauty and gift of marriage.
