You were the smartest girl in the class

I sat beside you in science

When the teacher wrote H2O

on the board

the pretty girl called it

H-two-zero

You giggled and bit your hand

and smiled when I looked at you

and we shared the joke

I have loved you ever since that day

If you never knew

it is my fault

But since that day

Every woman

who remembers my birthday

Knows your name.
