Tonight She Was So Pretty

[ For R.A.F. ]

I saw a young, adorable girl,
and oh, she looked so pretty!
Brown crests, her hair tied in a bunch,
adorned her head — so pretty!

She spoke, I heard, her gentle voice,
and oh, it sounded pretty,
soft wind’s fingers caressing leaves,
t’was music — oh so pretty.

Askance I glanced at her warm smile
that made this night so pretty.
Near her I sat, so weak and still,
enamored by her pretty.

I shied from staring in her eyes —
for oh, they were so pretty —
Afraid that in her gaze I’d see
I wasn’t all that pretty.

Ipaambit kini! (Share this!)
