As The Beauty of The Rose

True Love Ways
Norman Petty & Buddy Holly

When wrapped in the light
of the golden sun.
The rose opens its petals with love.
To drink in the warmth
and care that God has given.
Starting as a young bud it grows
into the beauty of the rose.
Rejoicing in the life it is living.

Love is as the rose.
It begins as a smile,
a look, or a gentle hello.
When nourished with
the warmth of the heart
it grows
into the beauty of the rose.

Yet as the rose.
If your love is not nourished
with warmth and care.
The petals will fall.
The beauty will fade.
Your love will
no longer be there.

Thus, take your love.
Embrace it with your heart.
Giving as only you can.
It will renew in its beauty
as when love first began.

Growing in the warmth
of your heart
as graciously as God has chose.
Showing its tenderness
to the world.
As does the beauty of the rose.
