Love's bench

 She hurried frantically back to the bench
in a frenetic search for her purse
She was mad at herself for being so careless
And her teeth began to clench

She was hoping against hope that it would still be there
But it was gone, she was left in despair
Just then a tall stranger tapped her on the shoulder
In his hand her lost purse
She thanked him,  and they chatted awhile
Even exchanging a few smiles

The next day they met on that same bench
And as they gazed into each others eyes
Love began to blossom under blue skies
It began when her purse was found
And now love had found them, and given them it's crown

    Nothing's worse than a purse, wallet, or even keys left behind. Thanks for the read.
