Flowers of Love
The Martyrs Rose:
Dedicated to Those Who Gave their Lives
for The Bab and Baha'u'llah

The Martyrs Rose blooms in the Abha Paradise,
its scarlet tipped petals
tinged red with the blood of God's lovers.

Remembering faith's sacrifice
red edged cream petals
glisten in the light
of a new day.

Martyrs in the path of faith
and in the Cause of God,
they ascended into the garden of paradise.

Those who were left behind
must live each day
sacrificing self for the Beloved.

The petals of love
are scattered along the path of faith
by the steadfast in the Cause of God.
