Give me my flowers while I live. (Tweet-worthy!)

You’ll never know tomorrow’s tears.

Give me my flowers while I live.

You just might help me conquer my fears.

Fondly you know how short life is.

So give me my flowers while I live.

I like to smile, love and cheer.

Give me flowers while I live.

The time is ticking while we’re here.

Give me my flowers while I live.

Don’t listen to people with bad ideas.

Today will be gone, tomorrow will disappear.

You still have time to whisper something nice in someone’s ear.

Please give me my flowers while I live.

Those sweet smells of jasmine and honey is real.

Give me flowers that will heal.

My broken heart with something tangible to help me live.

Now give me my flowers so I can remember.

That special day that was oh so tender.

Give me my flowers while I live.
