We never had a chance

We never had a chance to make it right,
one day, you stopped loving me
I remember moving out, in the middle of the night,
but it was really just past three

I only glimpsed you a few times after that
in passing, running errands
I often wondered about the dog and cat
she'd crossed the road, so daring

Fourteen months later, I hear the news
not the cancer or diabetes, no, your heart
I cannot believe. No! Not you!
We never made it right, that fresh start.

I'd think of you, us, and pretend
that we could go back and fix things
hug, catch-up, make ammends
but your life left you, on invisable wings

Here I am, alone and crying over you again
but so much differnt than before
no more future, hopeful view my friend
and missing you forever more
