The Padlock on the Bridge | Gail Henderson

It was meant to represent our togetherness

Till death do us part and foreverness

Our joined there in verse, for better or worse

Let no man put asunder, not everness.


But our love was not locked so permanently

You found someone else and you gave them the key

All the vows that we made you were willing to trade

Along with the love you once had for me.
