When I asked him about the case, his eyes grew cold and distant; a kind of shield, to protect his heart in an instant.
He stared in a gaze, for it wasn’t just a case; it was made with great care, and lined with silk and lace.
There were trinkets and letters, and scraps of paper laid in; surrounding a gold vase, that stood shining within.
A memorial of sorts, that brought him to tears; for it’s all that remains, of the love he spent years.
It sat by the window, in the glow of the Sun; surrounded by flower, and pictures of loved ones.
She was more than a women, or a wife you see; she was the air that I breathe, and the best part of me.
She made me feel whole, with a smile on my face; she was my Angel from Heaven, that moved with such Grace.
I am sure there are plenty, that could have flown; so why did he take her, and leave me all alone?
So that case will set there, till the day I die; for I made a vow, and I can’t say Goodbye.
