My Blue Hockey Jacket

My blue hockey jacket
Sits in the bottom of a bag
A hidden reminder
Of what I used to have
It was my favorite jacket
I wore it the last time we met
Back when always
Meant forever
I haven’t worn it since December
We had the best time
From what I remember
That night I draped it on your pillow
Because it still smelled like you
When I awoke the next morning
After dreaming of us, two
My blue jacket there
Pretending it was you
I was wearing it that January day
When you took your heart away
Stunned, I took it off
Not knowing what to say
My blue hockey jacket
Sits in the bottom of a bag
A hidden reminder
Of what I used to have
It was my favorite jacket
I used to wear it all the time
Now it’s just another reminder
That you’re no longer mine
Learning to live without you,
My hockey jacket
Isn’t the only thing that’s blue…
