The Man Never Came

Once upon a time
There was this poor guy
I waited for him
The man never came
I had told him and he accepted
That when my work has reached me somewhere
I would come and we get married

I then introduced him to my friends
I spent all this time believing he was
All time thinking of the same things
I got what I thought would keep us
While together
He was all I had to think of
Every day I saw him brought me happiness

I gave him whatever he would ask me
Did all I thought would please him
Knowing there was a hundred ladies thirsting for him
But he showed me a heart of a soldier who deserted
On the day of my introduction
They never came
The man never came
