Your Clothes

How can I give away your clothes?
When each piece with you, I chose

I remember when and where each was bought
And the happiness then to you, it brought.

I hold them dear, close to my heart.
They are what remained since your sudden depart.

So how can I give your clothes away?
I want every single piece to stay.

Beautiful memories are engraved in each piece.
I will not give them away, I will not release

I remember every occasion that you wore each shirt,
And reminisce over each dress and skirt.

A priceless treasure you left me to keep,
That warms my heart but makes me weep.

I couldn’t have imagined when we got you a dress,
That one day I will hold it to caress.
