The poem is about a person being alone in an airport, and the "cherry blossom" is found on the person's suitcase.
"I thought a lot times in his life he has been alone in airports," she said. "I would want him to carry the people of his diocese in his heart, in his mind, and in his prayers like the cherry blossom on the suitcase."
