I saved the flowers.
They were too bright , and too pretty to take right away.
It wasn’t time for them yet.
The ground was still cold and hard.
I waited and waited to take them, saying “maybe tomorrow”.
I seemed to have forgotten about time, because in the end, they rotted and died, before ever getting to leave their vase.
Maybe the cemetery ground wasn’t ready yet.
Maybe, I wasn’t ready yet.
