On the day my eyes opened
I promised you a pair of shoes
black wedges with a red ribbon
sky high fuck me shoes. you said
A present because I like you
A thank you for opening my eyes

When they arrived
you sounded so happy
so overjoyed, you giggled
as you wobbled through the office
A symbol of the path we walked
A pedestal for your self-esteem

Before I left you wore them again
afraid of the future
excited by the possibilities
good bye, be strong. I whispered
A memorial to our time together
