18 Months

18 months ago my life changed.
18 months ago my husband died.
18 months ago my world was turned upside down.
18 months ago I became a widow.
18 months ago my husband was gone forever.
18 months ago my husband was never coming back.

Why can’t they see that
I did not choose any of this
and it will not change?

Why can’t you let me
be happy with my life now
without feeling bad?

Why’s being happy
so bad when my love is gone
and new love is here?

Who thinks it’s easy
to be a widow so young
and want love again?

Why do they judge me
when nobody knows the truth
about my real love?

One love is gone now,
One new love is here to stay
this is my new life.

If you don’t like it
then walk away from me now
I can be happy.
