Had I been a renowned beauty,
with many suitors at my door,
you'd still be whom I would have chosen
to walk with for-ever-more.
Some may have offered riches
and trip to exotic land,
while you brought me your true love
and a simple wedding band.
Though our love was not forever
for God took you far away,
you left sweet memories to surround me
and brighten up my lonely day.
