Once Again

Once Again

Before,
Two years of false time,
Double the grief ,

A decade to be sure you were truly the one,
I let you in,
To become my world,
You chose to destroy me,

Why?

Now,
One score and two of unreal,
Grieving twice the time ahead,
Old true loves never face,

Sixty-five,
Senior citizen,
Retirement,
I can pretend to start over,

Once again.
