legacy

but I buy these flowers anyway 

knowing you’re expecting as much 

as a reminder 

cut flowers are dead flowers 

no longer a potential for growth 

yet 

brightens a day 

beautifies a space 

brings about love 

even 

in the final wilt 

decay of the fragrance 

a return to earth 

nourishing essence of what remains 

to foster and feed 

hearts that follow 

forever
