When I felt you dying inside, my heart ached and I cried.
When I heard your silent screams I felt so powerless.
I wanted so much to ease your pain.
I got down on
my knees and prayed from the
depths of my soul: “Oh, God, help my friend.”
God came and caught you as you fell into the dark and lonely night.
He placed you in his loving arms and held you ever so tight.
He led you to a secure and loving place,
by His never-ending love.
Then little by little, day by day, I
began to see glimpses of sunshine come into the depths of your heart.
Oh, what joy it is to see you, my friend,
blossoming into a beautiful rose.
As you go forward on this journey, always remember,
God and your friends will travel by your side day by day.
Indeed, you’ve had your share of thorns that cut and hurt deeply,
but you, my friend, have chosen to truly
experience the magnificent beauty of the rose.
and the Rose, my friend, is you!
