I dated a girl once who was a real peach.
She just about smelled like one, too.
And even on bad days or ones filled with rain
Her smile lit up the room.
I dated a girl once who said she was haunted.
Where she went, a ghost also came.
She was so cute that if it weren’t creepy
I’d honestly do just the same.
I dated a girl once who loved to paint.
On her canvas she’d copy the sky.
And when she asked if next she could paint me
I blushed so hard I thought I might die.
I dated a girl once who traveled the world.
She practically lived on a plane.
I would’ve asked her to live with me
But she needed a spur, not a chain.
I dated a girl once who dressed in all black
Even when it was a hundred degrees.
My cats left fur all over her dress
And unfortunately oft made her sneeze.
I dated a girl once who was a barista.
She tasted like sugar and cream.
The first time I saw her was at her café
And the whole day then felt like a dream.
I dated a girl once who loved to write.
She said it made her feel free.
I came to her once with a poem I’d written her
And it turned out she’d made one for me.
