Coming from out of nowhere somewhere in space somewhere above Somewhere my love Running and running I was Those son of a guns Would pop me in my head Pop pop pop on my face Splat spla splat Trying to dodge them But to no avail **** happens I guess They were streaming down millions of them Some as big as a house Some tiny itsy-bitsy ones Couldn't even see the sun shine Clouds people or :-) Faces I was the marathon man I ran,ran and ran for cover But they were everywhere Snowflakes got bigger and bigger I kept running uphill downhill Uptown downtown Chinatown too And to my surprise came a large snowball Bigger than life itself Rolled side-by-side Parallel to me it did Soon was consumed by all this snow Sucked up by this larger than life snowball Rolling by the countryside In speeds of up to 65 And continuing on this journey never-ending Seemed time had stood still Being a wayward vagabond And adventurer at heart Although a prisoner I didn't mind In spite of the path that was chosen Before being born In All the confusion what I miss most was my girl Sweet Maggie May As I would call ,in the sweet tender moments That only Shakespeare would write about And Rembrandt paint.. With all the thoughts on my Maggie May Seems the cold didn't bother me at all When suddenly seeing this other ball Even larger than my own Roll along side To my amazement there was someone in it a person like myself Woopie woopie dandelions I can't Believe it Happy :-) At a thought of having someone so near wow We finally came to a halt In the frozen tundra below Knowing that years and years had passed me by Looking across the other side Gazing at the other ball of snow white To see this other person a prisoner like myself Put a smile to my face and jumpstart to my heart It was totally electrifying I wasn't alone anymore Me Maggie May and Those big balls Here comes the sun..

All I can say is "wow" what a vivid imagination . Seems that may was saved for a special occasion. Since you were both caught rolling along , then time stood still, since you were both alive, and you got a big thrill . Thank you for sharing , and keep up the good work . From one Puerto Rican to another .
