Don't mourn the girl who got away,
The one you loved more, every day.
Recall? The girl you had to wed,
Your one true love, or, so you said.
Would it have lasted through the years,
Through highs and lows, through laughs and tears?
Would she prove right, at your behest,
Make bad times good, and good times best?
Would loving her avoid the woes
That life doles out to friends and foes?
Or would your life have been the same
If that someone had a different name?
