the cards fall as they do

& sometimes

no matter how hard

you try

to get in your own way

the cards fall as they do

I told her I was leaving

yes she said I know

known for some time

this was not a love thing

we will be better

as friends

& we were

seeing her through

two marriages

death of her parents

her sister

seeing the child she had

grow up to be her own woman

& then

she died

as people wondered

just who I was to her

this friend ex boyfriend

flitting in & out of her life

appearing re appearing then gone

never jealous never lost

just letting the cards play as they lay
