I lay a lonely rose
upon my Mother's grave,
I'd never been,
Tears too numerous to tell
fell faster
then any rain
I'd ever seen.

I wanted in the Earth with her,
to lay beside her bones,
to wash myself among her dust,
all of her remains.
To try to feel her spirit there
to know that she was close
to try to take her pain.

I never knew my Mother,
She went before her time,
leaving all her little ones,
taken in her prime.

I believe she's ever watchful
yet never feel her there,
If I could only lay down deep,
I'd know that she'd be near.

I had to leave my Mother's grave
had to say goodbye,
Never got down in that earth
got on a plane to fly.

One day I'll see you Mama,
I'll see you bright and clear,
and we'll sit and talk it over,
Nor shed another tear.
