Old Maid

It took 44 years for me to marry. When your my age that's kind of scary. Thinking old age would get me first. Or even something like dying of thirst. Then one day my Knight did shine. At that moment I said he's mine. It's my old friend from twenty years. I used to sing songs in his ear. We used to get a lot of stares. The song I sung was Unanswered Prayers. He'd asked me twice when I was twenty. But being young and men were plenty. That's when I should of followed my heart. Instead of spending 20 years apart. I lost that time we could have shared. But now we're hitched and the perfect pair.
