If Roses Grow in Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for us.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from us.
Tell her I love her 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,
Because there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
