I woke from my sleep, feeling warm in my heart,
Just as my day was about to start.
I was touched by an angel, and I know her name,
My darling Marirose, the one and the same.

The same one who shared my life o’er the years,
The same one who shared my laughter and tears.
The same one who raised a great family,
The same one who loved and supported me.

The same one who was always my friend,
The same one who was true to the end.
The same one I love and will patiently wait,
To meet her again at God’s Heavenly Gate.
