I gave her flowers

I gave her flowers today to make her smile. I gave her flowers to help ease the pain of the blows she accepts without a word or tear. I gave her flowers today in lieu of a lecture that would tell her enough is enough. It’s time to stand up and walk away.

I gave her flowers today with the hopes that she will see that someone else loves her too.. why not love herself. I gave her flowers today not to justify his actions of abuse.

I gave her flowers today with the determined heart to show her that love should not hurt. I gave her flowers today to let her know that she is the victim and it’s not her fault. I gave her flowers today to encourage her that I will stand by her side. I gave her flowers today to show her that I will not judge her.

I gave her flowers today to show her that I am ready to walk with her through the storms of what we call life. I gave her flowers today to show her what a true friend means.

I gave her flowers today to represent the strength she has to be free. I gave her flowers today to just say I love you. Finally, I gave her flowers today for the last time.

For today would be that dreadful day that I said good bye one last time as we lay her to rest. I gave her flowers today. No more punches, no more blows to the ribs, no more slaps to the face. No more tears for I said good bye today. I gave her flowers today.

I gave her flowers today for the last time. I said good bye to my friend today. For she will feel no more pain from her abuser because the last time he hit her, he took her life. I gave her flowers today one last time.
