Roses Will Bloom Again

Hiding somewhere deep in the earth,
was a small bulb.
Unearthed from my mama's garden
and replanted in the dry soil of my own,
I doubted that it would ever grow again.

This morning 3 years later, 
a blossom erupts. 

My eyes water at the sight of it.

A friend of a dear friend of mine
wrote the song, Roses Will Bloom.

The chorus is simple,

Roses will bloom again,
Just wait and see.
Don't mourn what might have been, 
Only God knows where and when, 
But roses will bloom again. 

It's a promise of sunshine after rain
and joy after pain.

God sees,
God hears,
God understands, 
He will come.

Life will burst forth from the dark, 
dry soil of your heart.

Roses Will Bloom Again, 


Mama didn't grow roses.
She loved tulips, amaryllis, irises and lillies 
the flowers that bloom again year after year.


  1. Beautiful...
    The words, the photo, the promise...
    Beautiful moment for you, my friend.
    Thank you for sharing with us. : )

  2. Your grand children are so beautiful! Sometimes they are hard to get here, but what joys when they arrive. I also love the wire baskets.

  3. I'm with your Mom, give me a bulb or annual any day. Roses can be a nuisance to try and grow. They're so picky! *lol* For my husband, though, I broke down and planted 6 Rose bushes last year. Even after a lot of tweeking involving spraying, fertilizing, trimming, and mulching, they are finally producing big beautiful blooms. But what a PAIN!

    Hope y'all have a great weekend Bon-Bon. (Such a cute nickname.) ~:)

  4. Beautiful picture and post. We have something coming up in the front beds, as you know we had a very hard winter..don't know what it is..I planted sunflowers last summer, but they never bloomed/came up. So, who knows!! Blessings

  5. Pretty white flower and lyrics, roses will bloom again.

  6. How neat that your Mom's Iris is now blooming. We grow almost the same thing that your mother grew.. Except for Pansies (which are Annuals), we grow perennials (Tulips, Daffodils, Lilies, Daylilies, Irises, etc.).... Love them ALL...


  7. Bonnie, I love your mom's iris. I know that feeling you experienced when you saw it. Last year, some lilacs that I planted from my mom's old place bloomed...six years after she passed away. It just made me feel so good. You know , the first flowers my mom ever had, were irises. :):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  8. I enjoy all flowers, but this one is truly special!

  9. Beautiful white lacy iris. What a wonderful story and worth the wait.

    My white iris didn't bloom this year...I think I made the mistake of cutting them back to far. Maybe next year.

    The song, or poem is lovely.

  10. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Such sweet words. So grateful for HIS promises.

    Have a blessed night ~Sherri

  11. Yeah!!! I am so happy it bloomed and has given your heart an extra flutter :)

  12. Bonnie, I remember Jeff and Sherry Easter singing that song...I always loved it. They were a favorite of mine and my hubby :) Roses WILL bloom again!
