Larry went to school with me

Only that one year.

I can’t remember his last name,

But his memory is still dear.

I think that year, a spindly girl,

I was just in the sixth grade;

I wore baggy hand me downs

That for bigger girls were made.

But,oh I had a “crush” on Larry;

I thought he was the best;

But I couldn’t keep up with stronger girls,

And he played with all the rest.

Then in spring, one day he said,

“Today is my last day;”

And I was faced with having

My “true love” move away;

But what a surprise for a small plain girl

When we recessed at noon

When Larry sneaked a good-bye kiss

That set my cheeks abloom.

When I relive that moment,

My cheek can still recall

That resounding smack that let me know

Larry liked ME best of all!
