~ The Hat Box ~
 
A hatbox full of treasures
letters trimmed with gold
mem'ries of a lover
back from days of old

Today in reminiscence
I had to question why
Was your love real
or make believe
Had cupid passed us by

That special day approaching
when love is in the air
inside the box, a greeting
'I Love You', message clear

Along its edge, blue satin
with scent of your cologne
Tears well up inside me
as memories unfold

Valentine's Day for lovers
when hearts and souls embrace
inside the box, our picture
Fingers trace your face

This heart just keeps on wishing
the telephone would ring
Alone I sit in silence
tears flowing down my chin

Thoughts of you play leapfrog
go dashing thru my mind
If only I could step back
to that other place and time

To times when we were happy
'fore everything went wrong
Instead my mind keeps singing
same sad and lonely song

For me there'll be no flowers
to brighten up my home
No candlelight or romance
and dinner spent alone

Ah yes, perhaps I'm crazy
but know my love is true
My heart and body quiver
with every thought of you

I read another letter
a habit every year
Floating now in puddles
soggy from my tears
