Eventually a Champion by Joan Healy

I count men as encounters

Of barely-nearly and near misses,

Close calls and close shaves,

Butterfly love and puppy kisses.


I almost married you,

But another girl stepped into the ring.

I almost loved you,

But a soldier is no match for a king.


I remain unfazed by fate,

Unmystified by mystery.

I see only good things for me without you.

My Disney destiny is history.


I am now my own champion,

My why and my how,

If you were something I had missed,

Wouldn’t I be missing you now?
