 I Got Flowers Today

I got flowers today

It wasn’t my birthday or any other special day.

We had our first argument last night,

And he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.

I know he is sorry and didn’t mean the thing he said,

Because he sent me flowers today.


I got flowers today.

It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.

Last night he threw me into a wall.

And started choking me.

It seemed like a nightmare.

I couldn’t believe it was real.

I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.

I know he must be sorry

Because he sent me flowers today


I got flowers today and it wasn’t Mothers Day

Or any other special day

Last night he beat me up again

And it was much worse than all the other times

If I leave him what will I do?

Who will take care of my kids?

What about money?

I am afraid of him and scared to leave

But I know he must be sorry


I got flowers today.

Today was a very special day

It was the day of my funeral

Last night he killed me

He beat me to death

If only I had gathered enough courage and strength

To leave him

I would not have gotten flowers today
