Keep me for an SOS

August 16, 2008
By Donald Roberts, Medway, MA

Forget about me.
Move on with your life;

But keep a special place in your heart
For that summer and the guy you met;

So if he ever leaves you
If your heart is broken:

You have my number-
Call me and I'll come running.

The author's comments:
I wrote this for my ex girlfriend when she broke up with me. It was a bit more complicated than that but I won't bore you with the details. I truly hope that the last stanza comes true.
