Following years of waiting.

Many years ago she said

What turned out to be goodbye;

Now alone I sleep in my double bed

And cry


So I, as I grow grey and old

Must find someone else to woo

Rolling over, the right side feels so cold

Someone who will be true


It came to pass on a bright summer day

In a coffee shop we both frequented

To her friend I over heard her say

That man there, with him I am tormented

I cast a smile across the room

Our friendship was cemented.

    1. Thank you Ivor,glad you enjoyed reading, words on a page can mean so much in differing ways to each and every one of us. One never knows until you get an individual reaction. Enjoying a beautiful sunny Sunday morning here at 10:20 hope all is well in your part of the world.
