The Mary_Grimes Rose

The Mary_Grimes Rose

Every time that I smile,
Every time that I sigh,
I think of your face,
And a tear escapes my eye.

You were my world,
My inspiration and my heart,
But when you left me,
I thought I would fall apart.

You were my friend,
My 'confidante',
And that's not all you were,
You were also my mum.

I didn't want to live without you,
But you would have wanted me to,
And if there's anyone I want to make happy,
That anyone is you.

I would have given anything to have you back,
But I know now that it was meant to be,
For you are still watching from up there,
And I know you're watching me

The Mary_Grimes Rose was planted in our Memorial Rose Garden in 2014.
