After All

He was never coming back
She could accept that now

The fights, the love
The joy, despair
Had seen their final round

She let the calm flow over her
Unable yet, to miss

No mental checks of what he’d do
Her thoughts began to drift

Who was she, before him?
She never really knew

What was she, without him?
She could learn that too

So much she never noticed
Living as she had

She vowed to become mindful
To think, and act, and plan

A sense of wellness filled her soul
Her life would now be good

And with a smile
She would begin
By cleaning up the blood.
