Padlocked love

Padlocked Love

So many padlocks
Locked with love
Each locked compartment
Bursting at the seams
Once upon a time
the symbol of fidelity
Lovers clipped them to a rail
Threw away the key

Thousands of padlocks
Sitting in a row
A sign of relationships
Waiting time to grow
Years pass by and the
world begins to tarnish
Locked to the rail
With no hint of varnish

Could we view those couples
Starting off brand new
Ten years on how many
Are still true
Are they welded close
Like the padlock on the rail
Or split assunder the lock
All atrail?
