The Flowers of Manchester – Remembering Munich 65 years on

Today, Sixty five years on from the darkest day in our history, we join together to honour and remember our beloved Flowers of Manchester and everyone who lost their lives at the Munich Air Disaster.

The Lads they played a simple game
After seeing them you could never look at football the same
Champions of England
All home grown
But known far and wide beyond their home
On the way back from a trip
Tragedy struck
Which made the world believe United would slip

But through the ashes flowers regrew
And Manchester United became anew
New faces new names new heros too
But the Busby Babes we will never forget you
Although so long ago you did depart
No length of time will ever heal our hearts
Lest we forget that flowers grow through the ash
You will never be left alone in the past
For the Flowers of Manchester shall live on
Not just on this day but past tomorrow’s dawn

The Flowers of Manchester. Never forgotten, forever loved, and in our hearts always.
