If roses grow in heaven,

Lord please pick a punch for us,

Place them in our Mother's arms

and tell her they're from us.

Tell her we lover her and miss her,

and when she turns to smile,

place a kiss upon her cheek

and hold her for a while

Because rememberring her is easy.

We do it every day,

but there's an ache within our hearts

that will never go away.
