GOLD'S GARDNER
Heaven had some roses
in need of tender care
Some peonies and lilies
growing here and there.
They need a special gardener
to tend them day and night
A gentle hand to train
them how to grow just right.
So God looked down from Heaven
and said, "There's just the one."
"Come, my child, and help me
your work on earth is done."
- by Rhonda CLYMER

AFTER GLOW
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of
smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of these who grieve
to dry before the sun of
Happy memories that I
leave when life is done.
