"If Roses Grow in Heaven

If Roses Grow in Heaven, Lord,
Then pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I 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 every day.
But there is an ache within my
heart that will never go away."
