Goodbye England's Rose


May you ever grow in our hearts.


You were the grace that placed itself


Where lives were torn apart.


You called out to our country,


And you whispered to those in pain.


Now you belong to heaven,


And the stars spell out your name1.


And it seems to me you lived your life


Like a candle in the wind?:


Never fading with the sunset


When the rain set in.


And your footsteps will always fall here,


Along England's greenest hills;


Your candle's burned out long before?


Your legend ever will.


Loveliness we've lost;


These empty days without your smile.


This torch we'll always carry


For our nation's golden child4.


And even though we try,


The truth brings us to tears;


All our words cannot express


The joy you brought us through the years.


Goodbye England's Rose,


From a country lost without your soul,


Who'll miss the wings of your compassion


More than you'll ever know
