Thanks to a-fiercesome-thing-to-behold for tonight’s inspiration. She asked the question:
What do you do with old jewelry an exboyfriend gave you?
Here’s an answer an ex-boyfriend might have, in the form of a song.
When you left me baby,
I didn’t even cry.
But I hope you keep that ring I gave you.
So a part of me is always by your side.
We didn’t split on the best of terms,
but I bought that gold when we were ripe.
Keep it as a sign of what love can be,
when love’s done right.
The pawn shop might give you
a pretty penny for the loss.
But a reminder of what good love is
seems too rare to just toss.
Maybe we weren’t meant to be,
but that ring could grow with you.
It might make you smile
when you’re old and lonely and blue.

Baby, you do what you want with it—
I wouldn’t Indian give.
I just hope you choose to keep it
‘cause I’ll never forget you
and the good times we had.
