The Graveyard Of Your Heart

I looked into your heart today
To try and find me there
But saw the place where once we danced
Was now all clear and bare.
The grass was cut, the soil was tilled
But nothing growing there.

I further looked with saddened eyes
And spied a lonely mound,
And in a hole within the earth
A box was all I found.
Upon a plaque my name was scrawled
In the graveyard of your heart.
