Curtain Rise.... Curtain Fall? - Poem by Masked lady

Curtain rise…..

Two people unite for love and for life,
Everybody wishes them nothing but the best,
The event would be the happiest for two people in love,
Hopeful of all things best and beautiful on earth.

Built a family full of dreams and hopes for the best future
He left for other lands to seek for greener pasture
For the children and a better life he said
They patiently waited for his return.

He did come back twice in 15 years,
But never again for other relationships,
Financial and moral support came
Very seldom and sometime none at all,
The family manage to live afterall.

The union that started so well has come to its end,
No tears fell, only wailing hearts and misty eyes;
No use crying for rotten foods she says,
T’will ravage not only the body but the soul as well.


Curtain fall....

She moves on with a smile, full of hope for a better life,
That may not be easy to be alone she sighs,
Yet she’s got strength from the real love of her life,
It’s not curtain fall after all she realized,
For her and for her kids, it’s another curtain rise.
