No Better Love

They’d been together

For a long time now

She couldn’t image her life

Without the man she loved

He never made her feel blue

Was always honest and true

Ordinary days

With colorful flower bouquets

Birthdays with balloons

In all the rainbow colors

She’d loved since childhood

And ice cream cakes

Quiet nights with scented candlelight

Slow dancing to favorite tunes

He made it all seem so simple

He made their love grand

If she mentioned chocolates

There were boxes of them

Champagne and caviar

Nights of passion

That sent her reeling

It was an incredible feeling

It all began when they were still very young

Their love just blossomed and grew

Her happiest day

Was the day he placed that golden band

Upon her finger

The day her life

Her heart and soul

Belonged just to him

He was the man

She could rely upon

The one who brought her the sun

And kept the rain away

When friends would ask her

She’d say

He was simply the best
