Image for the poem I once knew a girl

I once knew a girl

I once knew a girl
Her teeth were as white as pearls
She looked at me through shimmering emeralds
This girl, she had golden locks and curls


This girl, she said she liked me.
This girl, she meant it, it was to be.
This girl, she said she’d be there.
This girl, she said, you’ll see.


I once knew a girl, this girl, she liked me, but I didn’t know why.
I had nothing, I didn’t know how, this girl, she said she’d fly.
I had no goals, no money, no leg to stand on. I was lost.
I once knew a girl, this girl would be mine, and I would be her guy.


This girl, she said she liked me.
This girl, she meant it, it was to be.
This girl, she said she’d be there.
This girl, she said, you’ll see.


I once knew a girl, this girl, spent every dime, every second of time.
Proving to me, how she’d be mine. I didn’t know why.
I wasn’t worth any of it, and I proved it.
But this girl, when I’d call, when I’d text, she’d always reply.


This girl, she said she loved me.
This girl, she meant it, it was to be.
This girl, she said she’d be there.
This girl, she said, you’ll see.


I once knew a girl, this girl, she appreciated my efforts.
This girl, she proved to be a rare treasure.
I didn’t know a good woman, from a bad one.
But I do now, and I’m a broken man, ‘cause she’s gone forever.
