The Girl From My Every Night Dreams

I stood in a flock with the other nerds
Trying to think up of the words
To get that girl to dance with me
While my friends all laughed at the absurdity

She was the girl from my every night dreams
Talking to guys from the football team
When I broke away from the geek squad pack
On a journey forward without looking back

All eyes but hers were staring at me
My tongue was tied as I nervously
Asked her if she would like to dance
Time stood still for the circumstance

“Oh gawd, how dare you even talk to me
Go back to your group of weird buddies
I wouldn’t dance with you if you were the last boy on earth
Your mom should be ashamed for giving you birth”

The football players all laughed and gawked
The pack of nerds – the other way walked
I stood all alone just frozen in place
Shame and embarrassment painted on my face

And then a wallflower walked up to me
She said, “I may not be as pretty,
But I sure would like to give a dance a try
I’ve been trying all night to catch your eye”

Then another girl and then two or three more
Surrounded me on the school dance floor
I had a partner for every dance that night
And from that day on my life was all right

Twenty years later in the bank I own
That girl from my dreams came looking for a loan
Seems life hadn’t really been too kind to her
She said, “I’d do anything if you could help me, sir”

I saw no reason to bring up the past
Got no satisfaction in laughing last
I told her simply, “Just please sign here”
Her signature was smudged by a fallen tear

What a poem I can relate too! It is true that Karma bites back, but how humble you are to not bring up the past, a true man! Be kind and open hearted and you shall receive nothing but good things!
