The Flowers of My Heart - © 2014 by JT Price

Looking back across the years
into the black and grey
I send a whisper back to you
and hope you hear me say
In my days of darkness
Endless clouds and bitter showers
I always had a secret garden
and you were my flowers

In the rain
of yesterday
But like they say
Life is art
And what is true
is that you
and you and you
were the flowers of my heart

You know I have my regrets
for the dreams that came undone
For those years that I was lost
to my daughters and my son
But did you ever know?
that in my desperate hours
what always kept me going
was my garden and its flowers

In the rain
of yesterday
But like they say
Life is art
And what is true
is that you
and you and you
were the flowers of my heart

Now when I look around me
I see the sun has finally found me
And all I want to do
is share this light with you

Well I look at you all now
and my heart shines like the moon
to see my precious flowers
coming into bloom
One day I'll stand upon a hill
overlooking God's green valley
to see the flowers of my flowers
for as far as I can see

Until that day
I will pray
you hear me say
life is art
And what is true
is that you
and you and you
are the flowers of my heart
