Love Unspoken

I once had a heart; now it’s broken
She was once the love of my life
From a distance, the best man’s wife
I made my vows solemn spoken

I still saw her just now and then
I watched her smile without a care
Hatches, matches, dispatches share
Family ties gather again

Until today, her smile is gone
My shoulder holds my best man’s tears
As he faces his darkest fears
And I swear he’ll not grieve alone
