They knew
They both had always known

Stayed Married – 25 years
Had 3 kids. They fit right in.

Last days spent alone
Speaking with only a few.

Their friends and families were left
Presumably healthy, with clean margins

But they, themselves, had been cast aside
As if, they never were.

They hid it pretty well
They both had always known
They knew
