She planted roses the first year we married
It soon was a garden we'd go walking through
My job kept me traveling but when I came home to heaven
She was so proud to show me all the love that she grew
I heard her talking one day to a old friend
She said I don't want to hurt him but it's out of control
I feel so guilty 'cause he'll be so helpless
He won't understand why I just got to go.
Now I come to the garden alone
All my reasons I once had for living are gone
Sometimes when I feel like I just cant go on
I come to the garden alone.
No one can imagine just how much I miss her
I'd give up this whole world to once more hold her near
It's just beyond me on why god took her from me
I bet the flowers in heaven are looking better this year.
