For A Love That Has Been

Though life for him financially has never been great
He has never felt as lonely as he does feel of late
Since the woman he loved did walk out of his life
For to become a wealthier and a younger man's wife

Childless and divorced in his early fifties he feels his better days are gone
But he is one who will keep on keeping on
He will tell you there are many far worse off than me
Since i have never been homeless or known of extreme poverty

Even in the saddest life there is some room for cheer
On his way home from work he stops by at the pub for a beer
Though life for him not easy and he feels a bit down
He refuses to become the sad sack of the town

Complaining as such he does not see as worthwhile
And in public places he can manage a smile
But deep in his mind a great sadness remain
For a love that has been and cannot be again.
