She married him
She did not see his faults
The ones I found unbearable
She saw a loving man

She married him
She made for him a home
The kind I never did or could
Things always in the way

She married him
My first resentment passed
I saw her blessed with qualities
That made for him a mate

She married him
Their union blessed ‘til death
Removed from us the man she wed
The man we both had loved.
