Innocent Love - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

His Infidelity caused much pain,
a simple life she tried to regain.
But suspicion and doubt came creeping
and often, she couldn't stop weeping.

Lo and behold, her darling deceived her,
A fresh wind blew cold; on came a fever.
She told him 'goodbye', he began to cry
for he never intended to walk on by.

Three distressed people now live alone
without a real true-love of their own.
The triangle of love can tear hearts apart
Oh! ! if they'd only known this at the start.
