It wasn’t just the rose that I placed upon your chest
Or the last kiss on your cheek while you lay in your final rest
I wasn’t ready to let go or even say goodbye
I did as you asked me and not one person saw me cry
It’s been a while now and seeing roses still brings me to tears
That day, seems like yesterday, even after all of these years
You said you’d love me forever but forever isn’t eternity
Time is never determined by you or by me
I was blessed to have had you fill my life with such love
Though tears fall, in grief or happy memories, you’re still thought of
