“the Wife I Never Had”

She was my dream girl
The one I fantasized about
But, hard as I may try
She never gave me the chance

I loved her like my Mum
I wanted her like Riches
I needed her like food
But she was always far-fetched

Each time I look back in time
I remember her with nostalgia
I saw the mother of my kids in her
But she took me for-granted

I still love her without reservation
How I wish she could still be mine
She is my model of a woman
She is the wife I never had.
