For a rose which reminds me of my first love.
And the love of a Savior who came from above.
For the very first dollar I ever regularly made,
Coming home to my family, proudly giving it a wave
The color of my wedding gown of pearls and lace,
As I dreamed of the day with a smile on my face.
Is the color of my little one's two rosy cheeks,
This bundle of joy for which I've waited for weeks.
The color of my little girl's long shiny curls.
Dancing in her pretty party dress as she twirls.
How I felt sending my child to school the first time,
Knowing that never again will he be all mine.
As bright as the sunshine I see in a sunrise,
Warming me to my soul, flooding through my eyes.
Violets, hyacinths, lilacs and lavender too
Bring color to springtime as it comes bursting thru.
The color of my favorite, chocolate candy,
Which can make any day seem just dandy.
The color they may wear when at my grave
When feelings of colors my whole life I've saved.
So I say send me off with rainbows and
balloons and butterflies,
For the feelings of love will then be
showing in your eyes.
