The Girl in the Indigo Jeans--By David Fox--United States

The Girl in the Indigo Jeans

She was the love of his life
The star of his dreams
The girl in the indigo jeans.
He imagined being with her
In many ways, many scenes
The girl in the indigo jean.
Standing by the boardwalk along the beach
But this girl that wanted was too far out of reach
He saw her for the first time and hoped maybe perchance
She would say yes if he asked her to dance
But she was out of his league
Though he tried he couldn't get her by any means
The girl in the indigo jeans.
Even though that he's older and she's moved away
In his heart she will forever stay.

  1. David,
    The poem has an attractive title, with well chosen adjectives to describe the girl and further narrates the whole sweet story.

    Nice one!
    Keep it up

  4. Hi David, This is a very lovely poem recalling some beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime! Enjoyed!

  5. David, I just realized something...I think we've "met" before on a poetry forum at Poem Train. Is this the same David Fox?

    I really enjoyed your poem. It's amazing how we can remember someone and a specific detail about them (in this case, the jeans) and never forget who they were and how they made us feel. Great work!

  6. Poppy,
    Yes, we have "met" before at Poem Train. Thanks for the compliments but this was a purely fictional poem.
