“Never Let Me Go”

This is my submission for the Never Let Me Go tee shirt contest.  I wrote from the point of view of Kathy, who sees the singer as longing for a child.  But in this retelling, her dreams don’t come true.

Postcards and clippings,
Things I’ve kept and known,
Hopes and wishes spelled out on paper
Drop them, forget them;
Into the garbage they go.

These are the things
I’ve hoarded all these years–
Kept hidden in my pockets,
Repeated in my ears.

Chorus:

Baby, baby, never let me go
Baby, baby, try to understand
This is for us, for you.
Don’t ask me to forget them;
Baby, baby, never let me go.
