the mary-grimes rose


mary-grimes

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.
