"Last Year's Corpses Make This Year's Fertilizer"

I’m sorry you have been laid to rest 
But I don’t regret my choices 
You dragged me down 
Never gave me room to grow 
I just needed that small bit of sunlight 
But you were the only one sun bathing 
I’m sorry for the way you had to die 
So sudden
But for me it was worth it 
I never understood “pushing daisies”
Until they told me
Last year’s corpses make this year’s fertilizer
Because you have died 
I can blossom 
Because you have died 
I can grow
