She looked best with flowers in her hair
Bright white daisies woven through the darkest curls
We stargazed together
Laying in field of jasmine and lilac
She was a wildflower
Undaunted by anything and free
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Flowers have no reservation to open up
But I do

She looked best with flowers in her hair
But I was too late to tell her
Flowers wilt, flowers wilt, flowers wilt
She was not buried with flowers in her hair

It was a cold, empty winter
And in the spring, I picked my striped carnations
Pulled them from the ground
And I walked
And I wandered
As far as the world would let me go
When I finally collapsed to look up at the stars
I knew, from heaven, she had grown me a patch of butterfly weeds
And forget-me-nots
Daisy - Innocence/Hope
Jasmine - Sweet Love
Lilac - Youth
Rose (Red) - I Love You
Violet - Forever (also sapphic love)
Carnation (Striped) - Refusal
Butterfly Weed - Let Me Go
Forget-Me-Not - Remember Me
