One Pretty Dark Curl
As I passed an old store
Something told me to turn back_
I went inside and browsed around
Until I saw some pictures in a stack.
What happened then made
My heart skip a beat
An old picture flew out
And fell between my feet..
Picking up the faded picture
I saw a picture of a beautiful girl
And hanging from her forehead
Was one pretty dark curl...
It was then someone behind me
said, "May I help you Sir"
I turned towards a young lady
Whose beauty made my eyes blur....
I couldn't believe what I saw
And said, "This picture looks like you"
She said, "It's my great grandma,
why it's there, I don't have a clue....."
Well_one thing led to another
Today_ I'm married to that pretty girl
And the thing that made all this happen
Probably was_ One Pretty Dark Curl......
