"I brought you red roses" you said on Mothers day
I went to see,then laughted when i saw the bouquet.
There it sat so colorful and gay,
I wouldn't have it any other way,
It wasn't red roses at all
It was bright red tulips waiting in the hall.
So on this day, the anniversary of you death,
I want you to know I loved the tulips best.
You gave them to me with love from your heart
never knowing that soon we were destined to part.
Now today I bring you a tulip,
with love, the color is red,
and I'll treasure the memory of the day that you said,
"I brought you red roses"
