You tried to wake me in the morning,
This was our moment of goodbye
You asked me once, how long I'd love you,
I told you 'till the day I die
And now at last my life is over,
You cannot go where I have gone
I won't be there to share tomorrow,
I love you so, but life goes on
Dry your eyes, Rosemary Blue,
Take a look outside,
There's a world that waits for you
Live your life, Rosemary Blue,
Put your lonely tears away,
Wait an' see, there'll come a day,
I'll be with you
instrumental break
We used to walk the world together,
And found our love along the way
But now you must go on without me,
We cannot live in yesterday
Don't bring your flowers to the church yard,
Only the past is waiting there
You should be out somewhere forgetting,
Wearing those flowers in your hair
Dry your eyes, Rosemary Blue,
Take a look around,
There's a world outside that waits for you
Live your life, Rosemary Blue,
Put your lonely tears away,
Wait an' see, there'll come a day,
I'll be with you
Rosemary Blue,
Rosemary Blue.

    When i was 8, my mom told me she wanted this song to be played during her funeral. I didn't understand it back then. But now i do. She passed away last year, and as she had told me, i asked my dad to arrange the song at her wake. My mom loved my dad sooo much, she did't want him to feel alone when she went as described by this song.
