What happens if you file a VFR flight plan and for one reason or another you don't open it?

Is there a time limit and it just gets deleted?

    In the U.S., a VFR flight plan will normally be held until 1 hour after the scheduled departure time.

    it will time out after an hour or unless the airspace is in the SWAP program it will stay in for 3 hours

    SWAP = severe weather avoidance plan
