They meet
the day after Christmas
as agreed

They sat across
the table from each other
in an eerie silence

I placed the papers
in front of them
for signatures

And with the
stroke of a pen
their forever ended
in silence

No words
were needed
and none
were spoken

He got up
and quickly left
she remained
and softly sobbed

I know
that funerals
are not as sad
or as painful
as when there
is an intentional
end to love

After a few moments
she dried her eyes
and left
no words were needed
and none were spoken

but in my soul
I thought of Spring
and in my heart
I wished a
forever love
would find her
