fill your role be no other

we met once a week

cash going one way

while I talked of life love

anything other

giving up what I could

without ever breaking cover

for who she saw me as

& came the time to go

there was no hint of sadness

sighs smiles or sorrow

except a hint of regret

to who would fill my shoes

take up the appointment

be handing good money over

create the moving picture show
