Brenda Lee

Brenda Lee
By Jackie Hemingway


Let me tell you about a girl I knew,
Her name is Brenda Lee;
At the Gulfport Beach Bazaar we met,
On a rainy day indeed!

We knew in an instant that friends forever,
Was something we were meant to be;
But I had my own ideas about what friendship was,
And those I could not concede.

Nevertheless we became like two peas in a pod,
Running around so very happily;
It was the two of us against the world we trod,
Just me and Brenda Lee;

Like sisters we bonded and shared our lives,
Caring not whoever would see;
Sometimes it was like no one else existed,
‘Cept me and Brenda Lee.

Unable to bend an inflexible knee,
I lost a friend you see;
Because ignorance or arrogance, whichever you choose,
Caused me to lose my Brenda Lee.

  1. Jacki Hemingway’s poems can be whimsical like this one, serious like another, and heartbreaking like that other one! But what they all have in common? A SOUL.
