One empty heart locket, With no pictures inside You said never take this off, Wear it everyday. Maybe it was to remember. To remember all of our memories On that day. The day you became my family. The "unknown to you" lie You were telling me Would stay in my head forever. A lie too simple to not believe. You said, "I'll never leave." And in my fairytale world, I sure believed you. But when I opened my eyes, My best friend was gone. I will not forget The memories you left And I will remember The lie you spoke to me. My tiny heart locket Still remains empty, But on the outside, There is a date. The date you became a part of me. The date I got That little heart locket. The date you told me We would put a picture of us In that little heart locket. The date you told me That simple promising lie. And now as I remember That date while holding My empty little heart locket, I wish I could go back in time; Back to my fairytale world. Back to you, Back to the time You weren't going to leave, Back to the time I didn't have to wonder If you ever thought of me. Now my fairytale lives on, But only when I close my eyes. I'll never forget it Because I still have my One empty heart locket.
Dedicated to my aunt who decided to leave. Thank you
