And she left behind the empty cupboard,
Her favourite cushion and overused dresses.
She took away all her shoes, combs and pins
Leaving back vacant drawers and clear shelves
With all the emptiness filled in her room;
I sit on her favored side of the bed
Starring at the pot she painted bright
Some quotes and notes pinned to the board
Not all she took; bits of memories are left behind
Oh! She forgot to pack her honors and awards
Maybe she knew she’ll earn many more to show.
