The One That Mattered

“I love you very much”,
he would say to complete
contact with every woman
towards the end. A kindness,

both for him and the other.
Sometimes, most times
in the moment it was true.

And, the easy thing to do.
As his caregiver I held the secret
of this promiscuous proclamation close.

Constantly amazed
to see what a woman will do
when she believes
she is the one that mattered.
