She Watched Him Walk Away

A poem of love and when life happens in a negative way to hurt someone. Then, we can only hope Karma will step in and bring happiness agai


She watched him walk away,

he never looked back, nor, did

he appear sad,

His body language proved he was glad.

With her engagement ring in

his strong hand, he asked for it

while tears ran down her face,

another time she thought and

another place.

He married another, but happiness

evaded him, his marriage horizon

looked dim,

And, the fault laid on him.

He married again, and a baby made three,

But again the glow of happiness soon


He blamed others for the failures as they all


He would not accept his mistakes in life,

So he lived without a wife.

Years later---as he looked up from his hospital bed,

there she stood in white as beautiful as ever, wishing

she had not seen him now---his face turned red.

He told her of his unhappy life and of the baby

somewhere---with his second wife,

He asked her for another chance to make her happy on that day,

as he tried to romance her with expensive gifts, flowers and chocolates

from his bed was his way.

However, on the second day of his hospital stay,

She turned her back on him, and he watched her walk away.

Karma does not care if you are poor or rich,

Karma is a bitch.

Walking Away

PurvisBobbi44 I do believe in Karma. I so agree with you write up. People deserve to be treated well and if otherwise then you get what is coming to you. Your hub is interesting and lets us know of the bad and good one is capable of.

I believe in karma. She was strong and took a brilliant decision to move away. If we do bad with others it will return back to us. For sure, what goes around comes around. I enjoyed!!

Thanks for sharing this lovely piece

Blessings and Love
