Love Crime(5) (Grief And Cheat) - Poem by U Win Kyi

A couple of old husband and wife,
married happily their whole life.
They were awarded County Magistrate plaque
for setting a good example of eternal love.
In last August the husband died
and the wife was sad and cried..
One day she opened his suitcase
and she was amazed,
angry and heart-broken,
as it was filled with intimate photos of him and a woman,
whom the couple adopted as a goddaughter.
She was beautiful and 31 year his junior.
For 2 decades the adulterous relationship was kept secret.
Grief and betrayal cut her heart with a knife with double edges.

    It is so sad that these things only come to light after death. Thinking you have wasted your whole life loving someone who was cheating on you, is the hardest cut to take.

    A poignant tale of NEVER trust your husband, he's a man after all! lol Got to laugh!

    Smiling at you
