  “Give Me My Roses”


I’m tired and I’m weary

This old body don’t move the way it used to

The hair on my head has all but turned to gray

My mind don’t work the way it should

So if you love me

Take time to give me my Roses

While I can still see their beauty

And smell their lovely fragrance

For when this old body is laid to rest

The flowers sent for me I shall not see

I shall not see their beauty

Nor smell their lovely fragrance

The tears you shed I shall not see

The final parting words of affection

“I love you”

Will not be heard by me

So while the blood flows freely

And this old body is still warm

Take time to shower me with tokens of affection

For when my body lies before you

And I have passed through those pearly gates 

Time for us will be no more
