Personally I donīt think Ennis meant anything.
Jack is dead, game over. Therefor there is nothing for him to say, something I think he feels acutely. There is simply nothing left for him to swear to.

I mean that there is nothing left for him to say. Of course he has a lot of things we would like to say but he know ítīs to late. To late for any words or promises. I have just always interprited the scene as Ennis knowing that there is nothing he can swear to, and thatīs the reason he never finish that sentence

Jack I swear...

that both of us are man to man friendship, that I will plant some narcissus for you and I...
since I think many times  about you!

Etymology
There are two derivations of the name. One is that of the youth of Greek mythology called Narcissus, who, in at least one of many variations of the tale, became so obsessed with his own reflection as he kneeled and gazed into a pool of water that he fell into the water and drowned. The legend continues that the Narcissus plant first sprang from where he died. The other derivation is that the plant is named after its narcotic properties (narkoa, to numb in Greek).
