    There is a bench outside the San Juan Community Theater, with a dedication to Rosemary Marshall Kowalski, my grandmother. If you sit there, she might write you a letter in perfect cursive. She was an English teacher and mother to six children. was a cool lady. I sang her to sleep one night.

ROSEMARY FLY
By Britt K. Arnesen

There’s a bench outside the theater
Sometimes I sit and wait to meet to her
In a prayer or in a letter
Perfect cursive, even in goodbye

I sing my reply, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing I'm alright
Rosemary fly, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing I'm alright

This song's a letter I felt her send me
Down through forever through heaven’s sky
It finds me better but there’s still weather
I still sing but I still cry

Rosemary fly, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing I'm alright
Rosemary fly, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing I'm alright

A golden angel, young voice singing
Favorite faces, throughout the evening
We are her children and her children's children
Beside her through the night

And the song I couldn't write was Rosemary Fly
Fly knowing we're gonna be alright
Rosemary fly, rosemary fly
Fly knowing we're alright

Rosemary fly, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing we’re alright
Rosemary fly, Rosemary fly
Fly knowing we’re alright
