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.
