It feels as if it's just begun and now it's done.

In the scheme of things, fifty years is just a drop

and now he's gone and I'm alone.

Friends come by; and say they're sorry for my trouble

as if I'd dropped a paper bag of groceries.

That's no good, I'm still alone.

How to make it on my own?

Just buying packaged food for two and freezing half,

I'm not hungry, one way to lose a pound or two,

thinking I should drink my meal

blotting out the way I feel.

Really need to keep my thoughts away from dying,

don't want to leap before a bus and make a mess.

So damn angry that he left,

angry I'm the one bereft.
