Stem the cherries and remove the pits. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries with the water, sugar, and lime juice, and cook until the cherries are very soft and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Puree the cherries and their liquid and put the mixture through a fine sieve.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
