Yesterday in Sunday school I flipped open my New Testament to find this.
It's a dried red poppy.

When I saw it
so many memories and emotions ran through me.
Steve and I met in Jerusalem
and part of my heart will always be there.
Steve used to pick wildflowers for me
in attempt to win my heart
I kept every one he ever gave me
and pressed them in my scriptures
that I hold so sacred
to remind me of that special place
and the special love that we found.
