“Don’t go” he called

as she turned

wiped the tears

from her face

and walked away


He stood there

not believing

what had happened

but the door shut behind her

she was gone


His heart broken

he fell into the armchair

he wept, wept for the one woman

he truely loved


“Now what” he said

“we’ve gone through so much

and it ended like this”


“There is tomorrow

and I will get her back”

his head in his hands

his hands wet from his tears

“I have to have you, don’t leave me”
