She stood beside me, still and quiet,
A heavy heart but emotions
Just out of sight;
The hidden thoughts I was yet Unaware,
And my face shone
As she turned towards my chair..
Happy to see her after a long absence,
That I failed to feel the fading smile,
And the stench of severance.
Aah! how could I not realize, it was the last smile
That I will carry, as I walk out alone for miles
With eyes so firm, she looked at me
And then the words she utter,
'I can't take it any further,
I will exchange rings with someone else in the altar.'
Things did go jittery before she left, things did falter
And she never gave another chance for them to alter
The reality dawned, my mind cried loud, But
Every single drop of tear
And every little word I swallowed
As tears are not for those, whose vows are hollow.
