I have always thought
that flowers were a pointless gift
(but at the same time,
wished I was given them more).

now I understand that
it isn’t the flowers that matter –
it’s the ripple of feeling
that this small gesture starts.

because I would pay ten times over
for knowing that these small flowers
made you smile again
despite the terrible world.
