A simple park bench


She said she loved him, and gave a kiss to show,
But another had felt those warm lips, which he did know.

Old mother Jane looked out with a tear in her eye,
Remembering her life with Simon of years gone by.

Marry me, my love, and I will be yours for all time,
But the ring had a twin, which would lead to a crime.

I will if you will, whispered the young voices,
Years of pain would result from those choices.

Are you sure, said the man with panic and worry,
Months from now he would be sat with a new life in a buggy.

All these moments and more happened along the way,
Upon a simple park bench in the light of the day.
