A Fresh New Beginning

A Fresh New Beginning

The sky was overcast porpenting doom

He sat quietly alone in the gloomy room

He sat at the table still playing with the ring

His memories of the night flashed before his

Tired and weary eyes that were still stinging

From the tears he'd shed just after she'd left

He felt instantly lonely and totally bereft

It had not taken long for the return of longing

For her loving embrace Oh G-d what was this

Hell he was in? Why was it now occurring?

They had been together too long to give in

He had never strayed never once even looked

At another woman but yes - - although he worked

Hard he also played hard he didn't spend enough

Quality time with her and although what she'd

Done was dreadful he was partly to blame

He buried his head in his hands sobbing

The car slowed and pulled up outside

The sound of raised voices filled the air

Then the sound of the car door slamming

She let herself in her overcoat dripping

At first they could only stand and stare

They talked and smiled then did decide

To make a fresh start a fresh new beginning

They held hands - - looking and feeling old stirrings

A portent of what was to come new beginnings

I have to agree with David, the ending added such a reluctant touch. Great write.

Thank G-d they got back together!  Right now I'm depressed enough without THEIR troubles troubling me.  Good poem.  Enjoyable -- especially the ending!  --D
