Long ago, when I was younger,
and fair of face, the men would hunger.
Their minds all set on just one thing,
the fleeting pleasure it would bring.
But I was set on something stronger
A love I hoped would last much longer.
But through the years, you failed your vows
By younger flesh that did arouse
Time and again you broke my heart
with each affair you did impart
And now that time is passing by
There's no more "us" just you and I.
I've gotten older through the years
I've raised the kids through lots of tears
You look at me, my hair is grey
The laughter(?) lines, (crows feet) will stay
My skin is scarred from surgeries
my weight's not what it used to be.
I know that I'm not getting younger
Men old and young they never hunger
I know that when they look at me
It's not what they would want to see.
But way down deep, beneath it all
Though I've been made to feel quite small
If you had looked perhaps you'd find,
A beauty of another kind.
For I'm the one who stood by you
when all was said and done and through.
When you wake up to find me gone
if you should wonder, what went wrong
Think back on all these years and know
sometimes you reap, just what you sow.
For all I ever asked of you,
was just an endless love that's true.
