She walks alone in the darkness
Her smile as bright as day
I wonder if I spoke to her
Would she hear the words I say

I know too well what makes her smile
A love she feels is her own
What would she think if I told her
If his cover was finally blown?

She looks so happy on this night
But Iíve rehearsed my ever word
Should I share my secret
Will she find my words absurd?

Her man who makes her world complete
He spends his time loving her right
He send her flowers and sweet love poems
When he is out of her sight

But her man belongs to another
And shouldnít be with this young child
If his wife knew of the secret
It would drive her wild

Should I interfere, spill the truth?
Will it make a difference in the end?
Or shall I just walk past her
And once again pretend?

That I didnít see my father
Meeting her for a romance
And envisioned the heart of my mother
Broken without a chance

Iíve followed them both quite often
Iím sure she doesnít know
Where it is he returns to
When he tells her he has to go

She must be close to my age
An adult but still so naÔve
And I wonder what kind of stories
He is making her believe

She walks past me and smiles a bit brighter
In the evening Iíve let go by
I cannot find the words to say
No matter how I try

Caught in a battle of right and wrong
Where no one will come out ahead
I let her pass by once more
Without a word being said.

You did a great job! Very sad situation.
I pray you find the answers. A tragedy
like this hurts everyone.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Wonderful to see you again, azblond. "Without a word being said" is the right answer, I think. Sometimes so much harm can be caused by those acting "with good intentions in the best interest of others." She may thank you - and hate you - at the same time. Things always work out for the best. Time wounds all heels.

Excellent poem. It's a very sad subject. Sometimes I think it's true "What we don't know won't hurt us." No matter what we say or do. Sometimes people just do what ever they want to do. They don't consider those they're hurting.

Thank you all for the wonderful replies...although this is pure fiction on my end, I am sure there is someone somewhere that it applies to, and my heart goes out...

I love poems that speak about the real and so hard world. Subjects like these are so often ignored, and poetry that discusses these issues really hit close to home. It's truthful and beautiful.
