A Thought on being Widowed, from a Widow's Grandson - a bagatelle

Sometimes to lose your life's partner opens new door, is a new lease of life.  You are freed from the tedium of caring for someone perhaps you no longer cared for.  Or who no longer cared for you.  But even tempestuous marriages leave a sense of loneliness when one party dies, and happy marriages even more so.

"We, who were two
are now one,
but not one in the way,
that we were one,
when we were two."
