Peace

In Sixty nine, I was eight years old
With no idea, how life would unfold
That pretty young girl, who caught my eye
She had a peace sign, tattooed on her thigh

My parents place was called the Coffee Cup
She was their waitress, I was just a pup
I was intrigued, by her lovely blonde hair
With that Peace sign, I kept looking there

I couldn't get her picture, out of my head
I drew a big peace sign, over my bed
My peaceful dreaming, her lovely blue eyes
Hoping she'd choose me, above other guys

I found the courage, to express my love
She was more gentle, than a soft white dove
She said "Don't worry it will be okay,
you will find your true love, some future day."

When I see a peace sign, I have to smile
I picture that girl, with her lovely style
My very first crush, she awoke my heart
A special memory, a pretty good start

    Richard, I bet that peace sign would still get your attention today. Nice take on how symbols find different meanings in our lives.

    You are probably right *lol* although I would probably need to be much closer to fully appreciate it.

    A tattoo on the thigh is bound to catch the eye, perhaps just slightly more than no tattoo on the thigh haha, Great entry for the contest Rick, good luck with this. Take care, Richard
