If Roses Grow 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 I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there's an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
