Souvenir
White linen shirt
shiny black vest
your pink petal flower
falls from where it was placed.

Nobody notices
except for me
I pick it up from your feet
where you stand on a small oriental rug.

Candles still burn
as whispers drift through the crowd
no one is ready to leave

The music once dynamic
now plays slow and softly.

I'm trying to understand how the pink petal flower is a "souvenir." It just was, huh? That was kind of you to pick it up before someone stepped on it. I'm sure the other person appreciated it. Nice scene here.
