I plucked yet another lily gently from the top of the stem, and lowered it into the water. The movement made ripples that were slowly knocked out of balance by the small waves of the current. I tapped one of the petals sending the flower closer to the current and down the stream. I watched the flowers float away with tears in my eyes. I mentally counted all the flowers I had sent away in the water. Too many.. way too many loved ones that I've lost..
