BIRTHDAYS COME, DAISIES GO

She woke to find the daisies on her porch
No name attached to the card propped near the door
She’s thirty-six this morn
She calls her folks to be reborn
But she’s not the girl she was before

She’s got a rented place outside of town
She’s caught in limbo as her world keeps spinning ‘round
What will the future bring
Perhaps she’ll write and sometimes sing
Will love be part of what she’s found

CHORUS:
Birthdays come and daisies go
Life changes before you know
You can hide but love makes you grow
Oh birthdays come, daisies go

She drives her car to get away
Maybe the answers are in front of her today
She’s got good friends to keep
Who make her laugh and let her weep
Oh, they mean more than she can say

She knows the future will be bright
She’ll find direction and she’ll make it to the light
She’ll find the strength to climb
Another rung in her own time
And everything will be all right

CHORUS
Birthdays come and daisies go
Life changes before we know
You can hide but love makes you grow
Oh birthdays come, daisies go

She woke to find the daisies on her porch...
