In my Rose Garden of memoriesI see you standing thereAn angel in disguiseWho taught me how to careI long to hear your voicefor real not in my dreamsI am missing you so much these dayshow empty my world seemsPeople say time heals all woundsthat someday the pain will subsideBut Grandma I can tell youI think they must have liedThe emptiness I am feeling nowis strong and I am weakThese days go by without youso dreary and so bleakIn my Rose Garden of memoriesI know you'll always befor though you're gonefrom this mortal worldIn my heart you'll always be
