Purple Wildflower

There was a little wildflower
I wish I knew its name
A little purple wildflower
I ‘member it the same
It grew along the roadside
When I was just a child
I’d gather some for Mother’s Day
It did my mamma proud
It never grew off to itself,
But always in a pack.
I wish that I could see one now
It takes my mind way back.
'Tis the essence of flower power
That lil purple wild flow'r.
