I played the mandolin and our heart strings were
always in tune until the moment we said our last
goodbyes with changes.
You see I took your love for granted and stayed
away too often from the bed we shared together.
Our shoes had lost their shine; they were dulled
by the stomping on each others hearts.
Our dreams fell apart our ship came in but sank
to the bottom of the ocean to rot among the
carnage buried there.
Your beautiful sunflower dress has now faded
with time left hanging in our closet beside my
limp body hanging there.
