Please Don’t Send Flowers

He passed away today—
or was it days ago,
I have not the strength to tell.
Anymore, the rose’s petal’s say
what my words could never:
don’t send me more flowers—
please don’t affix a card to the lilies,
because I have relived his death
with each wilting lily
and cried more often then a rose in molt.
