I wrote this in 1999 after a dear friend was killed in a car accident. I still think about her to this day.

Verse 1

The Flower it grew from the earth to the sky. When it was in bloom, a rich and beautiful sight. It lit up the lives of all who came round. It was marveled until the day it was trampled to the ground.

Oh how the fragrance filled the room. Oh how our hearts are torn in two.

Chorus

You will grow in our hearts. You remain in our minds. You still bloom in the memories of those you left behind. And we look toward the day when our tears will be no more. Until then, you will grow and remain in the garden of our souls.

Verse 2

I can see you know in the master’s care growing in that garden we so long to share. For now your memory is all we have, but it won’t always be. Someday in God’s sweet garden, your beauty we again will see

Oh how the fragrance filled the room. Oh how our hearts are torn in two.

Chorus

You will grow in our hearts. You remain in our minds. You still bloom in the memories of those you left behind. And we look toward the day when our tears will be no more. Until then, you will grow and remain in the garden of our souls.
