There are lots of things

in my box of memories

Yes, there are some smiles

and some fondness

Memories of us.

Mostly, though, I look at

our wedding rings.

Mine is broken from where

I cut it off my finger.

They lie upon a note you

wrote to me of our love.

That lies atop a letter

you wrote to your lover.

These reminders of you are

what I keep close to my heart.
