I wish I had kept a tee shirt with my husban's aroma

last tee shirt

Give it away. NoÖ
throw it out.

Goodwill doesnít want this
lonely overwashed tee-shirt.

One thing I didnít figure on
was it being the final straw.

A skin close shirt softly soiled with
you is what I crave today,

to have you back in dirty tee and jeans.

A clean one a day, didnít keep the doctor away.

There is a deeper story in your writing that leaves the reader wanting to know more. The sign of a story weaver.

Cheers and peace,

Sadly poignant and when we lose someone the desire to hold onto something that was close to them is strong.
