Little Boy Blue & Little Girl Blonde - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Little boy blue & little girl blonde,
they met in school, they were both so young.
they fell in love at first sight,
they both knew in their hearts the feeling was right.
As they grew older,
their love grew much bolder.
All through school you laughed, and played,
the bond between you both was Heaven made.
She was your angel, you were her prince,
who could have guessed it would end like this.
Little girl blonde, one day did stray,
while little boy blue on business was away.
Nine months later a baby was born them,
it didn't look like her, and no way at all like him.
Yet he loved her so much that he looked the other way,
He loved her, and stayed with her till the heart broken day.
She was only going out for a quick trip to the store,
when some robbers shot her, and she lay dead on the floor.
Tears were shed, a funeral did follow,
little boy blue and his son did stand in sorrow.
A man came up to him, and said he was, Tim,
and that the handsome young lad really belonged to him.
Little boy blue didn't care one way, or the other,
for you see Tim, was little boy blue's older brother.
