She was relieved

He was gone

No longer would she ever

Feel like a pawn

His ways of controlling

Were now in the past

This new found freedom

Was destined to last

Not because she felt

She would always be alone

But because of maturity

And the way she had grown

A new life she wanted

One of satisfaction

Built on trust

And mutual attraction

And peace and hope

Would be part of each day

For now she was happy

She was well on her way
