I Was Never Faithful - Poem by Patti Masterman

I was never faithful-
Well not more than an hour;
The time to drive to church, and back,
To wed a faithful flower.

I was never faithful-
When temptation lived so close;
And I was one was always wont
To change to different clothes.

I was never faithful-
When the sun was in my eyes;
Or when the rains came thick and fast-
And living life brought sighs.

I was never faithful
In leap years, or at dawn-
Or dusk; or full moons languishing
Behind a setting sun.

I was never faithful-
I was not made that way;
But though my heart went wandering,
My flesh, it never strayed.
