Ashes of a flower 

I once gave you an envelope with two clues in it. You asked what the clue was related to and I smirked and said “I’m sorry I can’t tell you.” A shiny penny and a dead flower. You looked at me puzzled and confused and I just thought “boy am I in love with you.” You asked what the metaphor was. I’m a hopeless romantic. The penny stood for my lucky day which was the day I first met you. The dead flower stood for the love I had for you that died. I know you didn’t want to tell me that you no longer loved me but I already knew. This dead flower is for you.
