Annie’s Song

You were so self conscious
Yet you never saw the beauty in yourself
The beautiful brunette hair
That framed your lovely face
Which you thought lank and lifeless
Your fabulous legs that so often were hidden away
Which you thought were unsightly and fat
Your intoxicating laugh
That you heard as a cackle
The tiny scar on your cheek,
That went red when you drank too much
We could only see it if you pointed it out
You always thought yourself ordinary
Nothing could have been further from the truth
You were beauty personified
And my biggest regret               
Is that I missed my chance
I dithered and dawdled        
And I lost you to another

The One Who Got Away

A touching tale about young love and Annie, the girl who got away, not because she was claimed by everyone, but because she was too easy to overlook.
