My beautiful flower

(Verse One)

From a small seed
No bigger than a pearl,
Blossomed one truly
Amazing girl.

Vibrant petals
Of love she would show,
A beautiful flower
From head to toe.

(Chorus)

Why did you not let me know,
What was really going on below?
I was always here, just a call away
I would have found the right words to say

(Verse Two)

A smile so bright,
It didn't need the sun.
Her petals would dance,
Bringing joy and fun.

Her love was pollen,
Drifting through the wind.
Beautiful on,
The outside and in.

(Chorus)

Why did you not let me know,
What was really going on below?
I was always here, just a call away
I would have found the right words to say

(Bridge)

She stood up tall,
With her strong stem.
Never to fall,
Never to bend.
Little did I know,
Deep down inside.
There was an emotion,
Which succeeded to hide.

(Chorus)

Why did you not let me know,
What was really going on below?
I was always here, just a call away
I would have found the right words to say

(Outro)

It was only Fourteen years,
Since the year of your birth.
When God picked my flower,
Right out of the earth.
