"Sweeter Than the Flowers" as written by and Ervin Thomas Rouse Ervin T. Rouse....
Just as far as I can remember
She'll remain the rose of my heart
Mom took sick along in December
February brought us broken hearts

The reason we've not called the family reunion
We knew that she wouldn't be there
But since we've thought it all over, mama
We know that your spirit is there

No, no, I can't forget the hours
You're the onliest one, mom
And sweeter than the flowers
No, no, there's no need to bother
To speak of you now would only hurt father

It looks so good to see us together
But I had to look after dad
Oh mama, when I passed by your coffin
I didn't want to remember you dead

They all gathered 'round, I stared at their faces
All heads were bowed mighty low
But that was one time we all had to face it
It hurt us so bad you know

No, no, I can't forget the hours
You're the onliest one, mom
And sweeter than the flowers
No, no, there's no need to bother
To speak of you now would only hurt father

Oh, no, momma, we'll never forget you
And someday we'll meet you up there
