A poem for those who honor Shane:
Near shady wall a rose once grew...
Budded and blossomed in God's free Light..
Watered and fed by morning dew...
Shedding its sweetness day and night...
As it grew and blossomed fair and tall...
Slowly rising to loftier height...
It came to a crevice in the wall...
Through which it shown a beam of light...
Onward it crept with added strength...
With never a thought of fear or pride...
It followed the light through the crevices length...
And unfolded itself on the other side...
The light, the view, the broadening view...
Were found the same as they were before...
And it lost itself in beauties new...
Breathing the fragrance more and more..
Shall claim of death cause us to grieve...
and make our courage faint and fall?
Nay! Let our Faith and Hope receive...
The rose still grows beyond the wall...
Scattering fragrance far and wide...
Just as it did in days of yore...
Just as it did on the other side...
Just as it will Forever more...
