Seventeen

Seventeen

 

A vision in white

She captured his heart too soon

Still bearing a

shiny metal smile

and full of girlhood dreams

The apple of her daddy’s eye

and mama’s baby girl

A too-young heart

Bursting to love

She never could resist

a man in uniform

And at the tender age

of seventeen

She became his bride
