Uncertain Loss

She divorced him long ago
but when he died she felt a loss
that she didn’t quite understand
Perhaps a dream that had lived on
as half a life, as a whisper in the night
that was forever gone

She mostly remembered the anger
but some around her noticed
that she never quite let him go
It was never a hope to reclaim the past
more a wish that the past had not been
what it turned out to be
