You left the best to meet the rest,
The best you left is now a gem.
I washed and watched to see her grow,
Now the world as seen her glow,
You turned around to steal my show.
You left your best in the lurch,
All she wanted was your touch,
I listened and attended to her fears,
Now she trust and breathe fresh air.
You turned around to take a glare.
You told your best she was a fool,
While her love for you was full,
I made her felt like she was a star,
Treated and loved her without a scar,
Now that she loved me from afar
You turned around to threaten her.
You had your chance to keep your best,
It happened to be that you were a pest,
Brought to her life to build a nest,
You had the chance but failed the test.
Now we feel so warm and proud,
All you can do is be a man.
Let your hope to return be gone.
Because my love for her is strong.
I will live my life to be her song.
Like words of praises on her tongue,
Watch us as we go forever young,
Next time you come across a queen,
You will never forget to be a man.
