The couple

I once knew a young couple
Married because of a coming child
Not minding if they really knew each other
They usually seen
Fighting day in, day out
Thinking that was a normal things young couples do

Two decades have passed

I once knew an older couple
Still married for the same reason
Still fighting day in , day out
Still thought that was a normal things older couples do 

Two weeks ago

I once knew a couple
Escaping the normal things they thought
The wife took her own life
A week after
The husband took his own life too

The Afterlife

I once knew a couple
Still married for the same reason?
Still fighting day in, day out?
Still thought that was a normal things couples do?...

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
