Your Closet by Jane Dibble

The mustard colored coat,

You always used to wear.

The red beaded dress,

That gave you such a flare.

That little pink cowboy hat

That smells like your shampoo.

Those gold buckled 3-inch heels,

I used to steal from you.

I’m standing in your closet,

Wearing your green cardigan;

Thinking I’d give it all away,

If I could just see you again.
