Single? Really? Can You Please Hit Undo? - Poem by Sandra Dodd

Life without my husband is not a life I really want to have
I sit with the married folk but am single don’t ya know
On the forms “marital status’ I check the box with ‘M’
I buy the super size meal because I always shared with him
IRS says it is a felony to file married still
I guess the cans didn’t crawl to the curb, garbage guy passes our house at will
Yesterday I almost yelled “Move your car I hate the way you park”
I did not say it though cause I wanted you to make a move and something we would start
All this could have been our life of many many years
but you were removed by bodily defeat and I reduced to tears

Besides really loving you, the single life is not something to repeat
Really feel I am a wife in my heart I said ‘I do’
I am suddenly aware that I live in a world made for two
I don’t look at other men, though I think they look at me
Really didn’t want to be left here hating life alone
I want the life I used to have when I had you and you had me
I wore a big sparkly stone and all knew you and I were we
We were not the perfect match but so may things we did in tune
And if the truth be told I’m a little pissed at you
You left me here feeling like a bride in June

I went to town the other day ran into a very nice man you knew
At the end he asked me out and I wanted to slap him through and through
Who does think he is asking your wife out?
you are not here to be irate & strictly on my side, suddenly it hit me then
your gone I’m not your wife? I’m single like he is he did nothing wrong
its just that I feel so married in my body and my mind
But alas you departed me nev to return
like a woman that was scorn I feel so left behind

I am single and I need a life I know
My lips and loins have only been yours
to another I cannot join
you have killed my heart and taken it somewhere undeclared
Just waiting for you to come back from wherever you have gone
Believing the slumber of our union will be over soon
if I keep you in my mind as my husband and my love
You could make me right again and come from where you hide
I’ll pump the gas, take out the garbage,
You can eat the meal, park any way you want,
A look at a waitress you could steal
Ill never ask you to buy at the store what you do not use
I’ll do what you want in bed the position you can choose
Just come out form that scary place no more will you hide
Please come fill my heart and I’ll be by your side


There was nev a problem that your hug and cuddles make disappear
A word or nod is all it took to tell me that for me you were here
then I knew you were here for me all night
A touch of your hand all the world would stand still
never be another man who can make those moments true
without you this new version of the earth is harsh and unreal
Life without my husband is not life I really want
If I had the choice which I never had
I would extend my vows till death do you and me never part
