He Gave Me Flowers today


He Gave Me Flowers Today

I got flowers today.
It wasn’t my birthday or any other special day.
We had our first argument last night.
He said a lot of things that really hurt me.
I know he must be sorry because he gave me flowers today.

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

I got flowers today.
It wasn’t Mother’s Day or any other special day.
Last night, he beat me up again, and it was worse than the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do?
How will I take care of my children?
I am afraid of him and scared to leave.
I know he must be sorry because he gave me flowers today.
