My heart was torn when love did part us two,
For I had thought that we should never end.
But when I saw her gown upon the floor,
My sorrow turned to joy so swift and sure.
In secret moments, I would drape it on,
To feel the warmth of what I had before.
And in those moments, I became someone new;
The beauty of my former love once more.
Though she no longer was my heart's delight,
Her gown seemed to bring her back to me.
The fabric held the memories we'd shared;
It made me feel alive and truly free.
Despite the pain of our departing souls,
Her gown still made my spirit feel whole.
