MOTHER (My Lady Of The Roses)

Our mother was naturally beautiful
A woman in every way
Our mother was loving
And so caring
And always had her say
Every brand new day

As a child
I saw her gently tending her roses
With emotion so very deep
For the beauty that she saw in the flowers
Was from her heart
And her beauty made me weep
And the light of love surrounding her
Translucent skin with no flaw, I saw
Maybe, to others, as mother and daughter
We were constantly at war
Like two fires brought together
The flames of love did roar
‘Tis a love that will be in our hearts for evermore

And Mother, I heard you call to me
In spirit last night
Mother you need not be in fright
For God, our Father will take you through the door
Back to his heavenly home once more
Where relatives and friends are waiting
And you will be the belle of the ball

Though your body may seem missing
You’ll see it as before you took your flight
In Holy Spirit to soar
As you pass through
Deaths door
And we will always be together
As we have before.
