On the road we traveled, I found our paths diverging
Instead of one mind, dual thinking was emerging.
At a loss for reason, I looked about askance.
I thought I spied matrimony do a vanishing dance.
I looked at you then, my brimming eyes pleaded.
But, I saw no concern, your face was depleted.
It was devoid of emotion, there no love that I could see,
How had we come to this? How could this, us, be?
The silence gradually spread, encompassed our thinking.
I remembered a time when our path had been converging.
How we had started out together; hand in hand we had built.
How together, as one, with all problems we had dealt.
But I guess somewhere on the path we forgot to communicate.
We forgot to remember what it is that makes a union great.
Now I am left with things that I’ll never say out aloud to you
Because now on our diverging path; we can only regret and rue.
