Poem: One of My Life Stories

By: John Grey


Three high school sweethearts,
one from my first workplace,
two from my second,
the redhead I met on my travels,
the blonde I married
and divorced,
a couple of
and then you –

I have been loving
since the age of
thirteen and a half
but, only of late,
to the benefit
of both of us.
