Do you ever think about me even though long years
How precisely I recall you in your grey school uniform
Smiling shyly from your table as I eyed you from the lunch-queue
Clutching tray and Dinner ticket, smells of pastry sweet and warm.
Well I knew the scent of Vosene in your pig-tails strawberry blonde
Which you tossed with girlish laughter, how I longed to be your
As I passed your corner table did you ever catch me glancing,
Did you pray that I might one day stop and say a blushed 'Hello'?
Then you were my only true love, darling girl my perfect prefect,
How you stood out like a beacon from that school assembly,
Filing past the chair you sat in I would think with childish wonder
Ever should long years divide us would you still remember me?
