Memories on a Hanger

I reach out for you,
For all I have left of you...
A representation of your golden heart,
Your golden smile,
Your life.
A life hung by a hanger,
A lifeless story
Lingering in my memories.

I feel the silky touch of your satin gown,
The only treasure you left me...
I can still smell your favourite perfumes
Buried in the fibres...
You were buried.

I remember when its colour was so vibrant;
The day we met...
Its golden shade was a fitting reflection,
Of your perfection...
It was love at first sight.

And now the colour is gradually fading,
Like you;
Like us.
It's been ripped and frayed and worn out...
But worn.

It was worn by you.

This was great. It brought tears to my eyes. *sniffle* You are right we do need to be thankful for the time we have and need to realize how precious it is.

Thank you! And yes, you never know when you lose something special, so better enjoy it while you have it right?
