Three Words Day

Joan

He asked her. She said “Yes, I will”
And that day, started down a path

The doctor told her “It’s a girl”
The greatest love she’d ever have

Her husband said, “I’ve met someone”
And then he up and moved away

Her grown girl went abroad for good
“I love you,” — all that she could say

Soon jobless, went to her own mom’s,
And laid down on her childhood bed

She needed three words from her mom:

“You are worthless”
What she got

Instead
