Walking through a garden on a beautiful day
I had a dream of opening a flower shop in May
Pretty posies and blossoms graced every wall
Girls would order flowers for their dancing balls
I skipped through the daisies dreaming a bit more
My heart began to sing as I imagined the store.
Bending to smell the flowers on a sunny day
My dream began to blossom into a large bouquet.
Then fear squeezed my chest as I began to fight
Worrying about failing, my dream lost delight
A tear began to form and slid down my cheek
I couldn’t take another step my heart felt so weak.
Then he whispered in my ear and I am not the same
I heard the voice before when God called my name
Dear child, I want to help you grow a little more
Give me your hopes and dreams and I can make them soar.
He dusted off my petals and watered my soul
Knowing I was wilted he began to make me whole
Loving care and friendship is what I really needed
He hid me beneath his wings until I had succeded
I stood in front of the flower shop one happy day
My dreams had grown brightly in the month of May
God had taken much delight in seeing me flourish
He had blessed my heart with faith, hope, and courage.
I opened the door and was surprised by the sight
Pretty colours were displayed to my giggle and delight
God whispered, “This is how each person is to be
I want them to know they are cherished by me.”
An old homeless woman came in my store one day
She was tired and dirty in an unattractive way
People around our town had said she was crazy
I knew she had been just a sad neglected daisy.
She works in my shop and we became friends
The story isn’t over there’s more it transcends
When I treated her with kindness, she began to bloom
Love had transformed her into a sweet perfume
Have you seen a flower underneath dirty feet
Hoping for care from people they might meet
God wants you to treasure each and every daisy
Blessing them with love so tender and amazing.
