Thyme

We've each got
different partners now
and we're having

a real nice time
we agreed to separate
Parsley Sage Rosemary and ...

We both were once so in love
now we just stay in touch
we cherish the time

we once had
but we don't see
each other much.

I once saw her on the bus
once chatted on the phone
we sent each other

a couple of  texts
at work and at home.

But
We've each got
different partners now.

Hi Tommy. A strong and simple poem with that nice herbal twist that edges it in humour. A good effect to leave a blank when we know the word and then follow it with a phonetically similar one.
