Competition

I have nothing to offer to bring you back
No fancy car, no diamonds or gold
All I can give is what you lack
Warm arms forever to hold

I am not the beauty she seems to be
My figure no longer a “Ten”
All I have is the memory
And a heart to love you again

I cannot be a mystery to you
You know me inside and out
All I have left are emotions true
And desire that knows no doubt

I have nothing to give that can be seen
Just a smile at the end of the day
I no longer am the beauty queen
But my loyalty never does stray

I dare not compete with her flirtatious will
I offer only my eyes full of pride
She coyly gets men to give her a thrill
Mine comes from having been your bride

I cannot make you love me again
If you say its over, we’re through
I can only pray you’ll remember then
How very much I always loved you.
