In Loving Memory of KENNETH R. HAUGEN

In Loving Memory of 

KENNETH R. HAUGEN

August 27, 1946 – August 14, 2008

The Rose

by Bette Midler

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed

Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need

I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance

Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance

Its the one who won’t be taking, who cannot seem to give

And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long

And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow

Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose

Thinking of you often!

Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by 

daughter Jen, 

granddaughter Brenda
