In my Rose Garden of memories

I see you standing there

An angel in disguise

Who taught me how to care

I long to hear your voice

for real not in my dreams

I am missing you so much these days

how empty my world seems

People say time heals all wounds

that someday the pain will subside

But Grandma I can tell you

I think they must have lied

The emptiness I am feeling now

is strong and I am weak

These days go by without you

so dreary and so bleak

In my Rose Garden of memories

I know you'll always be

for though you're gone

from this mortal world

In my heart you'll always be

Zach, John Robert, Katie, Ryelee, Ayden and Abby
