She finds herself lost on this lonely trail
Thoughts keep returning, sorrows prevail
A broken heart cries, so fragile and frail
Things she remembers, but cannot curtail

Darkness surrounds her, she closes her eyes
Trying to find the answers to the whys
Why this had happened, she quietly sighs
Tears long dried up, she no longer cries

Knowing she was not the one who had sinned
Emotions had caught them both, a whirlwind
As much as she tried, her feelings chagrined
For she knew he was gone, his love he’d rescind

But light, a reminder, her chance to forget
No longer, would she live, nor even regret
Starting over, she knew, with a different mindset
She’d never again be considered a soubrette
