this ring around my finger

While packing away a few of your things
Ifelt may cause my heart misery
I realized how hard it was
to stow away the memories
The life we had together
Is impossible to erase the past
with memories lying around
for a lonely heart to grasp

Spots on the dresser 
where makeup use to set
A row of empty hangers
haunt your side of the closet
Dust filled drawers in your favorite chest
An untouched pillow next to mine
where your head use to rest
This ring around my finger
where the ring you placed,use to be
All the ache in my heart
is far to much for me

While packing away these things
i recalled the first time we met
When we were young and shy
did'nt know where life would take us yet

Growing older and deeper in love
we decided on a summer day to be wed
Our parents felt we were a bit to young
wait a spell they said
We replied no way,we'll make it last
even though we did everything right
I now stand alone
staring at this ring around my finger
In the shadows of our past
