 (The Best I’ve Ever Known)

There is a red rose in this world
A very special, pretty girl
She means so much to me you know
And with this poem to you I’ll show

Her smiles’ the first thing that you see
At one time it was just for me
It made me feel so good inside
I’d almost want to run and hide

Her eyes are yet another thing
The bluest that I’ve ever seen
They looked with love and tenderness
I would not want anything less

There is the way she moves around
No other woman I have found
Can do all things that she did
In time and space that she saw fit

Her looks and manners are good things
But there inside is more to see
The wonder that this woman is
There’s nothing that she wouldn’t give

She gave to me a lot you know?
I gave to her more than most know
But something sure did go awry
I ask myself now - why o why?

But time and space it changes things
And with it better feelings bring
The way they were a short time back
They were so good and that’s a fact

I want you in my arms again
To feel the way we did back then
To whisper in your ear to say
We needn’t wait another day

For you to feel what’s in my heart
The beating for you again starts
The feeling that I had back then
It would be all for you again

To look into my eyes you’ll see
The love again I hope will be
For us to have it all again
Just nod your head and tell me when

You are the best girl I have known
And with this seed I will now sow
I ask you to come back and see
The good love that I know can be

You are my Cannon County Rose
I ask you to realize and know
That you are everything to me
Come back to me and you will see

To: The best I have ever known
From: The best I hope that you will know

EDITOR'S NOTE: The preceding poem is printed as a personal advertisement in the April 26 edition of The Cannon Courier.
