Such a surprise!

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Her Sweet Deceit” by James Laughlin: joys, best, surprise, hair, think, someone, sweet, deceit, only, laugh, girls, alike

Such a surprise when I saw you
A sweet surprise out of the blue
And to think of all the places
We are to meet here as it does
Two girls laughing and all the buzz
We’re so alike with our auras
Known each one since we had braces
We used to share jeans and blouses
Someone like you bring the best fuzz
With the joys you give for ages
Only friend that I know is true
Had fun until we say adieu*
