Sorrow, Husband/Wife

Sorrow
She sat in the window,
To watch the rain fall
He sat at the kitchen table,
To drink his troubles away
Her tears couldn't fall
Along with the rain
His troubles were of his own making
The drink only dulled them
She knew he was drinking
While she was sighing
He didn't know why she was sad,
Why she didn't care anymore
She looked away from the rain,
Across the house in the kitchen
He put down his drink,
And saw her watch him
She wanted to smile,
Wanted to love him
He wanted to hold her
Ask her what was wrong
Her heart felt a pang,
Wanted to be in his arms
He stood
She stood
Walking to her,
He felt afraid
Of the truth
She met him
In the middle
Reluctant
