It took just one look A Poem

This poem is written about the first time Eric and I met. I am pictured here with my stepson Austin. I hope you enjoy my poem..




It took just one look

It took just one look, and he was hooked.

Her long, blonde, flowing mane,

Those big beautiful blue eyes,

It was love at first sight, the first sight of her.

Could she really be his?

Sometimes he just couldn’t believe it.

Yes, she was his!

Her warm smile lit up everywhere she went.

When she smiled she made him grin.

Her loving nature was one more thing he loved about her.

Her southern accent, she was liked everywhere she went.

Her compassionate charm, about her he knew she would never harm another.

His heart was in a safe place.

He could see it in her beautiful face.

“Be kind to her”, his mom said

“You will never find another like her!”

It just took one look and he was hooked.
