She Was The One

When she cared for me

And cooked great food

Hated shopping and said

“Gossip’s no good.”

I knew that she was the one

When she knew about football

More than most

And talked for hours

Like a nerdy coach

I knew that she was the one

When she laughed at my jokes

Though they weren’t great

And calmed me down

When I was irate

I knew that she was the one

When I forgot to wish her

On her birthday

She didn’t feel bad

No sorrow or dismay

I knew that she was the one

When she read my poems

And declared them best

And never reminded me

Of unresponded texts

I knew that she was the one

When she praised my body

And didn’t find it odd

And told me I looked

Like a Greek God

I knew that she was the one

When she was ten feet

And her skin was blue

And everything else was

Too good to be true

I knew it was just a dream

  1. Lovely, Frank 💛 So she was the one, and what a strange twist at the end! But she’s still the one, apparently. It was a dream apparently that everything was too good to be true and that she was blue or ten feet. Lol. Have a nice day 🧡 thanks for that 🙂

  2. This is beautiful.. she really sounds perfect, that’s too bad that it was a dream. But, I know, that dreams do come through… 👍
