Are there better men than I who've sought your love,
So rich and powerful or smooth of tongue,
Or handsome, fun or otherwise above,
Or more successful on Life's ladder's rung?
Have they taken you to dine at the right place,
And given you a thrill, a moment's smile,
And made you like and want them face to face?
Well, where are they now and where for such long while?
But I am here and will since you're around,
Be ever blessed to know you, thus to hold,
The memory of your beauty, when I found,
It in your every word and deed so bold;
Are there better men than I? Well, where are they?
None better loves you now and never may.
