I leave this Earth with questions un-answered, I take with me a flower, the seed and earth
Do you ever wonder what life is really about?
I see the youngsters play without fear or any doubt.

When they grow to adulthood, they'll see life change before them
I hope they have the courage to see that life's a gem.

Remember all the flowers that grow on Earth so free
God planted them for you and me to see.

As we grow much older and fears become too much
Take the deepest breath, O' lord, thank you for your church.

In life we're scared to be different, forgotten
It is our family around us that keeps us wrapped in cotton.

When my time does come, I'll remember being a child
And hope they bury me in the Earth and in the beautiful wild.

Trees and hills and birds and bees made up life so grand
I thank our God for growing nature and lending us His hand.

As we pass unto the next plain, where we all shall meet
I will be down on my bended knee, rejoicing in family retreat.

The colours of flowers that grow all around, were a mystic glow in the ground.
I take them with me to pass in heaven for the people I have found.
