Smiles from God
A friend once told me flowers are the smiles from God above.
Put together with the sweetest parts of all his love.
She said he made each different as we would like that best.
And then he added perfume so forever, they’d be blessed.
Roses and magnolias, the sweetest among sweet.
Honeysuckles on a vine, they’re such a lovely treat.
Daffodils that burst in lovely lemon everywhere.
Orchids, oh, so stunning with their regal style and flair.
Peonies are precious as they droop and then they lean.
Gladiolus, I have even seen them grow in green.
Lily of the Valley, with a history that's long.
Their beauty is beyond reproach, their sweet aroma strong.
Countless types and colors, too many here to mention.
They are nature’s loveliest of all of God’s inventions.
After winter’s cold, harsh days, the happiness they bring.
Is sent from up above, they are the smiles that come in spring.
