She Thought Marriage Would Have Been Nice

As the half way point of my life
Arrives before I knew it
I thought I wanted marriage
To that I must admit

I always imagined him and I
Sharing life and a porch together
Sitting there and reflecting
How the years for us got better

Remembering when the grand kids
Were kids and oh so grand
We look at them and see how they've grown
How the time passes like an hour glass of sand

I dreamed that we would reminisce
Of the places we had seen
All the things we got to do
Like living out all our dreams

But the hopes of marriage
Never came to be
That's when I realized
I don't need, another half to me

The way I am right now
makes me happy and content
I have all I ever need
Even, if I don't have a cent

You see what I have inside of me
Can't be taken or compromised
It makes me who I am
No one should be surprised

I don't need another
For me to live my life
Oh, I'm sure it would be nice
To have been introduced as his wife

Sometimes the things we most want
Are things we don't need
Life will go on just fine
My heart will not bleed

We can share the remaining years
They way we've shared the past
Always being together
With a love that will always last

Yes, marriage would have been nice
If nothing, just to share his name
But in looking back I see
That no one is to blame

I know some things are meant to be
While others are not
But I'll never give up hope
That one day we'll tie the knot

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
