Poetry #126 – Coat of Rememberance (collaboration )

Today I’d like to present you a collaboration with my dear Mel. She’s an brilliant writer and poet. She’s very sentimental, and has a large imagination. Do read her poetry and short stories if you’re a fan of fiction.

A long fluffy coat
Keeps you warm
In those hard cold
Winters away from home

A long fluffy coat
Embraces you softly
So you won’t forget me
When lonely hits you hard

A long fluffy coat
For which we hunted
In those hot days
Of remembrance

A long fluffy coat
Tenderly soothing your skin
Like my love’s warmth
When you used to call me yours

A long fluffy coat
Which I smell every time
I go to the wardrobe
And keep thinking of you

A long fluffy coat
Serving as my shelter
Reminder of your arms
That once kept me safe

A long fluffy coat
Where I shed my tears
As I long for your return
But hardly I can believe

A long fluffy coat
That we used to share
Our love was that strong
We only needed one

A long fluffy coat
That was once your joy
And you wore it with pride
What made you change?

A long fluffy coat
Alone without you
You were the light
You made it function

A long fluffy coat

That brought us
Memories and warmth

Till the day we parted
A long fluffy coat
Hangs lonesome and cold
No longer shared
No longer mine
