The Story

I had to get out,shoes quickly upon my feet I burst out the door not knowing who I was soon to meet Something pushing something pulling me where I needed to be A feeling I wasn't sure how to take An emotion so serial, surely a fake Suddenly serendipity seamlessly shoving me somewhere ''Then a blur'' My next memory was of hundreds of people with the faded face Except for one starring back at me What pray tell did this magnificent creature see All it took was a moment,a simple glance A second in time An eternity she offered with but one chance So i said Hi,how are you''what more did I need'' Satisfactory not satisfied-thank God for greed May I steal you for a moment for these words I can't let pass by Maybe just words in the wind to you But this will be our story please don't make me lie She turned with that calculating smile and infectious laugh It was so unfair But hello I did say,such a simple and remarkable word on this day Many more word,thoughts,memories and children we would soon share A Great Adventure,nothing could compare I was blessed with this wonderful life for fifty-six years Then father time came along to steal our minds and take my dear So to those whom dare not try- trust me in this Just say Hi Dedicated and inspired by Wild Bill and his adoring wife V. Can't wait to see you just not anytime soon!!!Doc
