At The End of His Tether
He changed her pad
then changed her bedding.
He was exhausted.
'Don't worry' he said. 'Can't be helped'
'Won't be long now'
She'd hardly said a word for years.
She had no idea who he was.
They'd spent a lifetime together.
He loved his wife.
That night he kept his promise and ended her life.
He'd finally reached the end of his tether.
