I Wonder (when I smell flowers)


little bird with blossoms

I Wonder (when I smell flowers)

How can our hearts
Beat as one
On the day
Innocence is gone

When part after part is rotten to the bone,
And everywhere dark touches leaves love losing us
Alone

Some mornings don't fit
Into the day before it's done
A moment lasts forever
For a mother and her son
And fathers little girl
Will not run through the door
With laughter, hugs and kisses
Any more, any more

Listen...
Can you hear the children play
There are voices in the breeze today
And if we listen carefully
They will be more than a memory

Time does not take love away
Love keeps the heart beating
And slowly finds the rhythm of the wind
In the air that we all share

I wonder when I smell flowers
And hear the ripples in the trees
If my brothers and my sisters
Are not still here with me
