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 doesn’t mean it.

I got flowers today; it wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.
Last night he threw me into the wall and choked me.
It seemed like a nightmare - I couldn’t believe it was real.
I woke up this morning all bruised and sore.
I know he must be sorry as he sent me flowers.

I got flowers today; it wasn’t Mother’s day or any other special day.
Last night he beat me up again – much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do? How will I take care of my children?
What about money? I’m afraid of him and scared to leave.

I got flowers today. Today was a special day:
It was the day of my funeral.
The other night he finally killed me; he beat me to death.
If only I’d gathered enough courage and strength to leave him,
I would not have got flowers today.
