The Rose Beyond The Wall, A Poem By A. L. Frink

The page that you are searching for has recently been moved, a copy of the poem is below, however following the link above will take you directly to it in it's own context.

Near a shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God's free light,
Watered and fed by the morning dew,
Shedding it's 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 there shone a beam of light.

Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear or pride,
It followed the light through the crevice's length
And unfolded itself on the other side.

The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before,
And it lost itself in beauties new,
Breathing it's fragrance more and more.

Shall claim of death cause us to grieve
And make our courage faint and fall?
Nay! Let us 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.

Only One Mother

Only One Mother - Unknown

There are several versions of this poem and two are included here

You can only have one mother,
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,
To your mother you will turn,
For all her loving kindness
She asks nothing in return,

As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all,

Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.

Only One Mother

You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true,
No other friend in all the world
Will be so true to you.

For all her loving kindness
She asks nothing in return,
If all the world deserts you
To your mother you can turn.

You can only have one mother
Please take her to your heart,
You cannot tell how soon the day
When you and she must part.

Let her know you love her
Cheer and comfort her each day,
For you'll never have another
When she has passed away.
