Double Whammy

There’s a hole in my life

Where he and she were

I miss them both much

Almost too much to bear


The two people with whom

I spent most of my time

My lover and my friend

One in heaven, one not mine


Unlike her

He will return

But to live without them both

Is a lesson I must learn


So twice I grieve

For my two special peeps

As my life they both leave

Whom I loved beyond heaps


Well, I’ll cherish the memories

Of the good times we shared

Those spent with him

Those spent with her


Those spent together –

The best times of all

He brought us together –

What a fortuitous call


Thus I thank him so much

For giving me that gift

She enhanced my life hugely

And I am grateful for this
