Beautiful White Petals
There I was
A beautiful flower
Till you came and took all my petals off
One by one
Till I was raw and defenceless
I just let you
Take them off
It doesn't hurt I said
I tried to put them back on
After you'd gone
But I didn't know how
My beautiful white petals
Were gone
So I cried out to God
Help me please
Put them back
Instead he did something
I didn't expect
New petals grew
Just like that
Beautiful White Petals
Beautiful White Petals
