If Roses Grow in Heaven
by Dolores M. Garcia
If roses grow Heaven Lord,
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother’s arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
Place kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
