The flowers came...
too thoughtless, too late,
"too cheap" is what I said to him.
He thought it was about the money,
I meant it was the thought...
last-minute, like something he had to do.
So I did something I had to do,
should have done a while back
Now it's done
He's gone, flowers too, strewn petals in the past.
