If Roses Grow In Heaven
If Roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick
a bunch for me,
Place them in my
And tell her they’re
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 every day,
But there’s an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
“Love you, Ama.”
