F.a.q. – A Violet From Mother's Grave lyrics

But while life does remain in memoriam,
I'll retain, this small violet I pluck'd from
Mother's grave.

Only a violet I pluck'd when but a boy,
And oft'times when I'm sad at heart this
Flower has giv'n me joy; so while life
Does remain in memoriam I'll retain,
This small violet I puck'd from mother's grave.
