Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life,...
If Roses Grow in Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my dads arms
And tell him they’re from me.
Tell him that I love and miss him
And when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon his cheek
And hold him for a while.
Because remembering him is easy
I do it everyday
But there is an ache within my heart
