We grew up together,
Him and I,
Climbing trees and
examining the night sky.
Everyone thought we would marry,
Including me, and we tried. We tried.
Some people just don’t fit together.
Like Him and I.
He has a wonderful wife,
so do I.
We love each other, just not enough.
He’ll be by my side for life.
There’s no worries there.
My kids will call him Uncle.
Maybe one day,
We’ll climb trees together,
and continue looking at the night sky.
