Love's Disappointment

The woman he loved would not become his wife
She married a man far wealthier than he is for a better life
Joe in his seventies is single today
And time on him is showing he is balding and gray
No woman for to keep him awake snoring in bed
He did not father children he never was wed
He only have memories of the what used to be
And the love of his life that he will never more see
To lose out in love caused him so much mental pain
That he vowed to himself never to fall in love again
A kind man he is one who is growing old in grace
He always has a happy smile on his face
He once was in love but that was years ago
For a far wealthier fellow she forsook Joe.
