If Roses Grow in Heaven

If roses grow in heaven, Lord,
Please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my wife’s arms
And tell her they’re from me.

Tell her I love 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.

In loving memory of my wife
and best friend,
My love for you is eternal.
