65 Roses

65 roses lying on your grave.
You were so young and yet so brave.
Why did you go?
We’ll never know.
65 roses lying on your grave.
You were such a lovely girl.
You completely changed our world.
65 roses lying on your grave.

65 roses crying in the rain.
It almost seems those roses feel our pain.
Now you’re dead and gone,
And we must carry on.
65 roses crying in the rain.
It is such a tragic circumstance,
You simply did not get a chance.
65 roses crying in the rain.

65 roses swaying with the wind.
Your young life ended when it should begin.
At least we know you’re safe,
In a special place.
65 roses swaying with the wind.
You were all so young and tender.
You’re short life, we’ll all remember.
65 roses swaying with the wind.

65 roses blooming in the sun.
They are a shrine to you, our precious one.
Not a day goes by,
That we don’t cry.
65 roses blooming in the sun.
So rest in peace and stay forever young.
You will always be our little one.
65 roses blooming in the sun.
