“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 that I love 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.
