Broken, dejected, and lonely resulted in her tears
Trapped in her heart though she wanders outside
Life isn't what it used to be, an acknowledged fact
But after all there is life and she's grateful.
She sees the world though through tainted eyes
As couples go by who might soon share her own fate
She yearns to say to them enjoy it while it lasts
But the words burn in her mouth because it's such cruelty.
Who am I? why do I feel this way? She asks
While holding a picture of the possible cause in her hands
Illustrated on their faces were the smiles of the happiness once felt
But no more since he left.
Gray skies now lingers above the roofs where love was once present
While every room reveals haunting memories
For her this house once portrayed life in context
But now has lost its meaning.
