I Wonder If In Heaven

I wonder if in Heaven
Will there will be a crimson rose?
How grand the bloom would likely be
If therein a flower grows.

How I hope there is a garden,
And perhaps an ocean too--
Then we could barefoot stroll the sand,
With the rose I picked for you

Thank you Ana. I hope so too, I really do. Hey, what did the garden of Eden look like? So, I think it'll be nice. Thanks for the read, and Happy New Year!

:) We have no idea what glories await us, Mel. Let's hope by His grace we are there. Lovely, indeed. If you do pick the rose, it would never die.

Thank you, John. I appreciate that glowing feedback. You should be a movie critic--a great tag! If I ever have a book, I want this on the cover :)
