I dreamt I saw him walking through the haze
approaching us with sorry mournful gaze
and ready with his apt and proper phrase.
How dare you walk in here and sigh?
Enough to steal her when she was alive
turning her heart against me with your lies
worming your way inside her pitying mind!
Embarrassed friends and family looked away
thinking this outburst strange and in poor taste.
Her husband handed each a glass and plate.
