The Mall On Christmas Eve Was Not The Same - Poem by Dan Reynolds
The mall on Christmas Eve was not the same
She sensed an absence, something not quite right.
That husband whom she’d took so long to tame
had disappeared so swiftly out of sight.
She waited for an hour, or maybe two
before she took the mobile from her coat.
Two lowly rings then answered by “Yoohoo! ”
(The giddy tone came from her husband’s throat.)
She blasted him with, “I’ve been worried sick!
Not knowing where you’d gone or where you are! ”
The husband who was used to getting stick
replied, “My dear, I’ve not gone very far.
Remember, on this day, ten years ago,
that jewellers where you saw that diamond ring?
I sensed then how you loved it, but I know,
we chose to give the children everything.”
Her pulse was pounding fast, she thought she’d die.
The guilt within could burst her from the core.
“That shop, I DO remember Dear, but why? ”
“That’s good” he said, “I’m in the pub next door! ”
NB. A joke(Not mine) adapted into a rhyme.
