I Have Two Children Now

I have two children now—
                 A girl and a boy
                        You never knew,
A husband who loves me—a job I enjoy,
                        And good friends, too.

I never think of us—
                  Today at the mart
                        Was such a shock;
Can ghosts push a cart to the checkout?—my heart
                        Stopped like a clock.
