If roses grow in heaven lord
then pick a bunch for me,
place them in my mothers
arms an tell her they’re
from me.
Tell her that I love and
miss her, and as she turns
to smile, place a kiss upon
her cheek and hold her for a while.
Remembering her is easy
because I do it every day,
but there’s a pain within
my heart which will
never go away …
