But when you left in '97 a part of me went to Heaven

from Immortal Technique (Ft. Jean Grae) – You Never Know Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

After Immortal Technique went to college and got locked up for some criminal charges in 1997, a part of his love went to Heaven (metaphorically). She had a glimpse of what true love really felt, and after they left each other, a part of her soul left her, leaving her empty, but with the satisfaction that it went to heaven.
