SHE

She
Sat at home alone every night.

She
Worried about him.

She
Knew he would never be hers alone.

She
Hoped he would change his wandering ways and stay home.

She
Knew when she married him he could not be tied down.

She
Knew there was always a woman out there for him.

She
Finally had enough of his wandering ways.

She
Told him she was going her way, he must go his.

She
Died by the side of the road.

He
Cried at his loss and wondered how he let her go.

She
Gambled on him

She and he
Won the gamble
