An Apple Blossom Came to Me
An Apple Blossom came to me, in the strangest of all places,
Drifting in through open doors, mingling with the faces.
Gazing ‘cross the counter top, singling out my eyes.
facial features rearranging, regist’ring surprise.
A quaint expression flitted past, never seen before,
A quizzical look, a curious look, then eyes drop to the floor.
Who is this gal, with all that hair, an angel’s face so fair,
Standing there, across from me? “Careful now, don’t stare.”
She was the sister of a dude, who drove our little truck,
The fact that she was standing here, was simply due to luck.
He had a ride, a hot Camaro, but it was broken down,
So now he was without a car, a king without a crown.
The place I worked was filled with men, we rarely saw a gal,
So when my Blossom did appear, I wanted to say, “Wow.”
I saw that glance, her lips did twitch, it seemed that she did smile.
A curious look, a quizzical peek, please don’t touch that dial.
That light I saw, upon her face, I see it now so clearly,
I’ve kept that glance inside my mind, and remember it so dearly.
You see, it was a one-time glimpse, a look that said, “Come hither,”
Even though we’d never met, my heart was in a dither.
Not confused, don’t get me wrong, I knew I liked this girl,
That had to be, or else, you see, how to explain this whirl?
Of thoughts and words, that swirled round, and left me all aflutter,
My mind grew sharp, my thoughts got clear, my words as smooth as butter.
I saw her there, I said, “Think fast,” and flashed her a quick smile,
If only I could talk to her, I’d go that extra mile.
“Joey’s out, he’s due back soon, come back and sit a spell.
It won’t be long, it’s after five, this could work out quite well.”
The time had come, she was so close, I had to use my mind,
This was the girl of my dreams, what a stunning find.
If only I could find a way, to show her I was able,
I’d take my cards and lay them out, right across the table.
I caught a whiff of her perfume, it made my spirits soar,
If I could just convince this girl, to let me see her more,
I’d do about just anything, to get to take her out,
And then I’d speak my mind to her, and leave her in no doubt.
That I was true and sound of heart, and crazily in love,
And looking for a mate for life, just like a turtle dove.
"So come with me, and share my path, and see how life is awesome,
if you’ll just come and stroll with me, my little Apple Blossom.
