He loved her for so long
Four decades to be precise
She was a wonderful mother
His best friend and beautiful wife

Compatible and happy
Sharing the same life goals and dreams
Excited about growing old together
The future bright it seemed

The children now grown and gone
Work life no longer did exist
This was their time 
To pursue their bucket list

Retirement came with adjustments 
Life and roles had changed
Bickering and disagreements followed
The relationship became strained

Distance stood between them
They grew apart
He asked her to sit down to talk one night
Into pieces he shattered her heart
