When is an Ex and Ex

When is an Ex an EX, she asked
When you stop wishing you could
Just pick up the phone
Because you know that she loved you
In spite of yourself
And that her advice is sound

When is an Ex an Ex , she asked
When you can no longer recall
The love that shined in her eyes
Whenever they followed you
Around the room
Fulfilling her heart's visual quest

When is an Ex an Ex, she asked
When you are contented
To keep her a cherished memory:
You can take her photos, cards and poems
And look at them through
More smiles than tears

When is an Ex an Ex, she asked
When you are sitting on the plane
Flying to your new lover's arms
And you say goodbye
Giving yourself permission
To love again.
