The Book of Roses - Chapter 11
Her place to remember.
She recalls the times she sat on this bench under the full moon talking with her Dad about life. They spent many hours here discussing the loss of her Mom, school, friends, boys, and all things that were important to her while growing up.
He always said the “right thing” and gave advice that helped her through life’s trying times. His wisdom flowed easily from him and came from a life of deep reflection . Whenever they finished a discussion he would select the perfect rose for her to take home for the flower vase in her room. Over the years she saved these roses and pressed them into her diary where they still sit today.
It has been a while since her Dad’s spirit left this earth yet she feels as though it was only yesterday that they sat together for the first time. She holds these memories deep in her heart and her soul knows that one day they will sit again on this bench under a rose moon.
