Ann Karleen Lynch

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my friend'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 will do it every day,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
