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 a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun.
Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day.
Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay,
And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.
God saw them getting tired.
When a cure was not to be,
He closed his arms around them and whispered,
"Come to Me".
In tears we saw them sinking.
We watched them fade away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
they fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping so peacefully free from pain,
We could not wish you back
to suffer so again.
So keep your arms
around them Lord,
and give them special care.
Make up for all they suffered
and all that seemed unfair.
