Sometimes in divorce, there is a period of time when you live together separating life and getting ready to move on. In 1990, I was in that situation with my late husband Jay. I was moving from New York to California with our then 4-year-old daughter and much needed to be done. It was during that stressful period of time, still living with Jay in our Long Island town-home that I wrote this. I came across it going through some writing files today.
ALONE WITH EACH OTHER
© 1990 by Harriette J. Schwartz
Here I sit wanting someone to adore,
There he sits thinking of somebody too,
Music plays that speaks to the heart,
Each allow the lyrics to rip them apart,
Knowing I’ll break if I shed one more tear,
Inside he weeps silently with nobody near,
My pain is colossal but he’s hurting too,
Alone with each other in pure solitude.
