I had a really wonderful (or at least original and kinda interesting) post planned for today. But I’m going out of town for the next week, with no Internet access to speak of, and so this post is actually being set up on Saturday morning.
Because of all this, I’m going to save the post that isn’t finished yet for another week, and instead upload a poem I wrote for my best friend, and the card I made out of it. For the record, she thought the gift was really sweet.
Just in case the picture above doesn’t work properly, or is too hard to read, here’s the text of the poem. I hope you like it.
The Girl I Fell in Love With
When we first metWay back in grade schoolYou were innocent, and shyHiding behind your long brown hairAnd ever-present yellow hatYou’re not the girl I fell in love with anymore
When we first metI felt you were a kindred spiritSomeone who would get itWhen no one else didWe shared the same joys and sorrowsBut you’re not the girl I fell in love with anymore
Now, we’re two totally different peopleSometimes the things you do make me cringeI want to hold you closeAnd keep you safe from the big scary worldIn times past you might have let meBut you’re not the girl I fell in love with anymore
Now, you’re wild and foolishOr so it seems to meA timid goody two shoesWatching you live your lifeFrom my safe seat in the cornerYou’re not the girl I fell in love with anymore
The girl I fell in love withWouldn't drink or do drugsShe didn't keep secrets from meAnd we didn't have the barriersI now pretend not to tiptoe aroundYou’re not the girl I fell in love with anymore
It feels like only yesterdayThat we met, and I fell in loveWith the most wonderful, fantasticAnd simply all around amazing girl
You're not the girl I fell in love withAll those years go
You’re the girl I fall in love withAll over againEvery single day
Legal Stuff: This poem was written by me, and belongs solely to me. Same for the image. No one is allowed to copy them or post them on another website without my express permission. Although I’ll be very flattered if you want to and ask me, so I’d probably say yes.
That said, I hope you like it. But maybe you don't, maybe you think it needs work or just plain flat out despise it. Whatever you opinion, please let me know. I’m happy to take both praise and advice.
P.S. I had four page views this week... from the Netherlands and Germany. To my anonymous readers, if you venture back here to see this, thank you, thank you, thank you. You give me hope that others will discover this blog, and that eventually, I may grow myself a small following.
