It's Soleirolia soleirolii = Helxine soleirolii, Urticaceae (nettle family):

Not an aquatic or swamp plant; it grows best on moderately moist bottom. But one of the common names of this popular ornamental plant is baby's tears, too.
It differs from Micranthemum or Hemianthus i.a. by having 1 leaf, not 2 leaves per node, and by the asymmetrical leaf shape.
