Sixty Nine

Sixty nine years is a long time
to know someone
or live with him.
It couldn’t have been easy
all those years
but she persisted
and they thrived
through life on the coasts
kids and death
empires won and withered,
they weathered it all
but sixty nine years
is a lot of marriage
and something had to break

And eventually
it was her:
a wonderful wife
a beautiful bride
a model who made her room-mate
miss her date,
and mastered The Man,
she faltered,

Sixty nine is lot of years
to live with the same person.
It wasn’t enough.
