One Final Word

pink-flower-swirl-transparent

This was where we met

The rest now history

The guilt which you buried

Now buried in your grave

You never said sorry

Two children, our kids

You didn’t care

You claimed the wife so young

Innocence of youth lost forever….

The husband, the boss

Rules to be obeyed

“who was this man?”

My company, just that!

You didn’t see

Late nights meant no sleep

The fear of your return

A smile to greet you-

Cry tears to sleep-

You never heard

All the while I prayed for love

Had God abandoned me?

Mum never too far away

She guarded her little girl

I loved her all the more

Behind closed doors hid shame and secrets

Someone must know

I wanted to run and run

But never told you

A final showdown, you broke my spirit

You broke my heart

This is where we met

The rest, now history

Any guilt you may have buried

Now buried in your grave

How I wish, you had said sorry
