If Roses Grow in Heaven – Poem

If Roses Grow in Heaven

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

  2. Stephanie, it was such a pleasure to hear from you – thank you for leaving a message and letting me know that the poems have touched you. Bereavement can be such a lonely place and I am pleased that the poem was able to enter your heart. I don’t think the pain ever goes away when we lose someone we love – there are always moments when we wish we could have just one more second with them.

    Congratulations on starting your Level 3 Counselling. How are you finding it? I wish you the very best and would love an update when you get time.

    Take care of yourself, Stephanie.
