She painted her lips, in a lavender hue

Promised to look her best, for she knew

The color she chose, would say it all

As she waited so patiently, for him to call

Large sterling hoops, dangled from her ears

Soft shades for her eyes, to lessen the years

A perfect head of curls that framed her face

She wanted to impress, with style and grace

Quietly, she waited, but the call never came

Realizing now, things were always the same

Decided to show him, just what he was missing

With lavender lips, it wasn’t he, she’d be kissing
