How could they end up on the cliff edge
she though it just another row
both moving apart surely a bad patch
until she mentioned her affair
only briefly while he worked abroad
her phone calls had ignored!
Met while young neither yet matured
but there was a special love
realising it may not save the marriage
could not change her actions
never expected to be up here pleading
as the marriage was receding!
Anguish had overtaken his whole being
drawing closer to oblivion
the cliff crumbling from beneath them
tried to hold him grip was lost
fell back onto the grass he disappeared
for a second the turmoil cleared!
Then reality hit her like a thunder bolt
the strain upon her a jolt
guilt tore her sanity completely apart
jumped with a broken heart!
