about

This exquisite waltz sings a beautiful story of faithful love that is sincerely heartwarming. Lyrics are center stage, and introduce an endearing couple in their golden years together, steadfastly coping with Alzheimer's. The guitar work is finger style, delicate as lace. The vocals are clear and the voice simply lovely.

lyrics

Iris has some paper flowers that she keeps near her corner chair.
They're all faded now to silver, like her silvery hair.
It's a secret paper garden. It's a story she could share. Look beyond those faded flowers, there is beauty sitting there.
Long ago she shared the promise of true love with Armand and they wed. Endearingly he'd make a flower of paper each night for their bed.
It's a secret paper garden. It's a story she could share. Look beyond those faded flowers, there is beauty sitting there.
Hand in hand they shared the blessings of true love as they passed their years. One by one there grew a garden of flowers keeping them near.
How it came to pass he wondered, when he mind had begun to fade. It's so hard but he remembers all the flowers they made.
Iris sits and talks for hours to herself in that corner chair.
So much gone she can't remember but he tends her with care.
It's a secret paper garden, it's a story they have shared.
Look beyond those faded flowers.
There is beauty, in the beauty, of the flowers they have shared.
