Bloom freely
Let yourself bloom freely from a young bud
Unknown unseen
Nobody giving a second look
If I were a flower
I would adorn God's altar
Spreading my color and fragrance everywhere
In the hands of a beautiful bride or
In the hands of someone dead in their graveyard
Dried in a book of some unforgettable memory
Maybe sometimes I would be plucked and thrown away
Trampled underfoot and discarded in some garbage bin
Nobody would even know I even existed
Yet new one grows again not knowing their fate
Make someone smile or cry when they reach the cemetery gate
If I was a flower
I would calm a worried mind
Bring peace where there's a war
Be crushed yet spread my fragrance
