Bring Me All Flowers Today.

I would rather have a LITTLE ROSE
from the garden of a friend
Than flowers strewn around my casket
When my days on earth must end.

I would rather have a LIVING SMILE
From one I know is true
Than tears shed around my casket
When this world I bid adieu

Bring me all the flowers TODAY
Whether pink, or white, or red,
I would rather have ONE BLOSSOM NOW
Than a truckload when I am dead!!
