If Roses grew in Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven Lord

Please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my Mother's arms

and tell her they're from me.

Tell her that I love and miss her

and when she turns to smile,

Place a kiss upon her cheek

and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

I do it everyday.

But there is an ache within my heart

that will never go away.          (author unknown)
