The Garden Without You

there were flowers in the garden once
roses bloomed
daffodils swayed
vines stretched
i used to walk the path everyday

but there was so much sun
not enough rain
not enough love
everyday i waited
but you never walked the path with me

the flowers grew dry and dead
the orchid petals curled in
the daisy stems grew stiff
the leaves stopped growing
still, i waited

then the rain came all at once
it drowned the poor flowers
each and every last petal fell off
they sank to the bottom of the puddles
that was when i stopped walking the path

there were flowers in the garden once
bright, colorful, happy flowers
i walked the path everyday to enjoy it
i wanted you to come
but i always walked alone

dont you wish you saw those flowers?
