Release Me

Somewhere there is a key

To the rusty heart

Beating in me

If someone finds it

The question is

Will it still fit

Maybe it’s not really lost

But still held in the hand

Of the one whom I loved most

Perhaps one day

He will return

With promises to stay

Will rust and decay

Built up over time

Block the lock, keep him away

Or will a stranger

Take a risk

Ignore the danger

Steal the key

That’s wasting away

Force the lock

And release me
