The shame upon your face as you turned and walked away,
spoke silently in volumes of the things you could not say;
You'd finally given up, thought you'd fought a valiant fight;
Our marriage just a casualty of the battles in the night;
The vows we shared as one, hope-filled dreams and happy tears;
Could not withstand the distance that grew with passing years;
Awkward strangers once again, we went our separate ways;
Each hoped in time to find true love to fill our lonely days.
