Flowers in January

i left flowers
on your door step
their blossoming petals
beamed brightly against
January’s thick, white blanket
they were there
for days
in the wake
of your coming
(and going)

by the time you
gave them an eye
it was too late
they had already
passed on

but
it’s okay
because some things
are meant
to die
