It was only just for a moment…


They were always together, almost like one
Joined at the hip some would say
But he let his heart wander for a little while
And when he looked back she’d drifted away.

It was only just for a moment…
Was what he said to his friends
Yet even those who sympathised
Found him typical of just such a trend.

We’re only given one heart of our own
It’s better to share with just one
For the space left behind by his wandering
Gets so painful now the owner has gone.
