THE WIDOW

The chairs were all empty
Everyone had gone home
She sat in the corner
All alone
She did not get up
Looking as if in a daze
Her thoughts seemed jumbled
As if she were in a maze
A waiter approached
And said in a voice so low
Leaning near her
Madam, we are closing, you have to go
She looked up sadly
Saying he did not meet me
And a tear fell from her eye
For all to see
I’m sorry Madam he replied
She looked so forlorn
Her look a surprise
He sat down and said
Please don’t cry
She moved very slowly
And started to walk
The waiter feeling sorry
Said, Do you want to talk?
No, she said, thank you, young man
My life is over
You wouldn’t understand
It took me time…but I now realize
You can’t come back
Once you die
He promised he would never leave me
And he died
Don’t you see
We meet here every Monday eve
And now he didn’t come
I must go home to grieve
She walked slowly out the door
Never going back
She could take no more
Love had gone from her life
She went home
THE WIDOW….not the wife
