her tight turtleneck sweater

I’m standing alone
in the frigid cold weather
thinking how we were once destined
to get together

remembering her so near
in her tight turtleneck sweater
way back when
she simply couldn’t look any better

but you know
I’ve never been much of a go-getter
and I never did send her
that long love letter

and now my old eyes
inexplicably feel a little wetter
so, I better move on
and find some warm shelter

    Perhaps a little formulaic, but a lot of my stuff follows well worn ridges in the road, I guess. Anyways, I’ve always had a weakness for a woman in a sweater.

      Thanks, It’s good to know that our words sometimes actually have some impact and are not just lost in the vast internet.

      Yes, I know shy well. I wrote a lot of verses in my youth, that mostly were never seen, until this blog, that is. 🙂
