Poetry - Away

Updated on June 3, 2010


 Meredith loved him

for eight seasons

At first hoped

to be with him

for a lifetime

 But then she left him

without good reason

and sought fulfillment

in the limelight


 She became a star

for her good work

but she was lonely

and disillusioned

She was famous

He was not

An unjust cause

for her confusion

 She decided to return

to him

after a long winter storm

because the feeling of love

did not wane

Luckily for her

he was still there waiting

unable to move on

from the pain

Meredith apologized

for all the hurt

she had caused

and allowed him

some contemplation

He embraced her again

after a long pause

and smiled

in his elation
