Flowers

Life
A choice of the living
Life
What binds us all as one
Life
Can be natural as giving
Life
The choice for us is done

For days she layed there looking out the window
At the view from her hospital bed
She could see each sunrise of the day
And the colors light cast every sunset
With so much going on but so little to do
She kept silent about her time
Til the moment came she spoke of views
That escaped all our minds

Are there flowers in heaven
that always just grow?
Never die like they do down here.
Are they just as beautiful?
Do the ones with thorns hurt the same
as they guard such beauty & love?
Are there flowers in Heaven
for those that need them above?

I smiled stepping back from the window that all of us seen
To look at a picture closer to a heart
How alone we can be in a crowded room
How close the finish line looks from the start

Those days of trying
Those days of rest
The routine of the living
to make each day the best
While still surrounded
by nothing but love
battling one day at a time
to understand the meaning of

There were no wrong answers to such questions that day
Only dreams about the flowers that our thoughts gave away
“Id like to think all things are possible both up there and here on Earth.”
“Yet dreams” she said, “are really never far enough from the truth.”

I still miss the face, I still miss the smile
I miss the grace for that extra mile
But were always close to the wisdom life brings
Like the way Ill never see flowers the same way again

Are there flowers in heaven
that always just grow?
Never die like they do down here.
Are they just as beautiful?
Do the ones with thorns hurt the same
as they guard such beauty & love?
Are there flowers in Heaven
for those that still need them above?
