They are all married by now, I am not.
Have two maybe three children and grand, I don’t.
Drive several cars, I can’t.
Live in a large house with land, I won’t.
Be able to say a kind word, I will give to anyone.
Extend a helping hand, I will do with pleasure.
Provide an ear to listen, I will always want to.
It doesn’t cost the same for everyone.
