Happy Birthday Margaret

'In The Red' - 2006

When you're lonely
I wish you love.
When you're down
I wish you joy
When you're troubled
I wish you peace
When things are complicated
I wish you simple beauty
When things look empty
I wish you hope.

How good to have a chance to show your admirers your wonderful work with roses - spectactular. Poem worried me a little - does it mean Margaret is going through a hard time at present?? If so, I wish her well.

The roses look real had to take a look on the larger size, brilliant job. Very beautiful poem too.
