My X-Beau

The phone rang - Hello?
A voice from the past
It was my x-beau
How are you, I asked! 

I’m just fine, he said
Old thoughts came alive
I felt swirls in my head
Divorce I did survive 

25 years marriage shared
We raised three children
Once he showed me he cared
This man was one in a million

But, his love for me died
I had to go it alone
For years I silently cried
I struggled on my own

Departed from my only true love
I still admire and think so much of
