Lilies (Flash Fiction)

FLASH FICTION PROMPT

Lily of the valley.

That was my favorite song for years. Our favorite song. I don’t remember when it changed. I just remember the Sabbath mornings where we’d stand with our faces to the sun, singing songs that seemed so very old, but so very special. I remember your voice. So beautiful.

Lilies.

White. Pure. Simple.

Peace.

How I miss it. How I miss you.

The way things were, the simplicity of the simple.

It’s all a mess these days. Such a horrid, wretched mess. Because somehow in looking for you, I’ve managed to lose myself.
