The Girl Who Got Away
By Marc Leavitt of Marc Leavitt's Blog
Recall the girl who got away?
The one you loved more every day?
Oh, yes! 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, unlike the rest?
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
With someone else, a different name?
Just sit a spell and contemplate
How hard it is to pick a mate.
Take time out from your busy day;
The “might-have-beens” were yesterday.
