Funny how sometimes you meet someone when you are not looking and when you least expect it to happen.
Before I start this poem/song (not really sure what it is yet) I just want to say that I had given up on ever meeting anyone that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I decided that I was going to save up, buy a condo and live happily ever after by myself.
One night I went to a bar with some friends saying to them as a joke, “I want to meet a guy that has tickets to the Bob Seger concert tomorrow night”.
The funny thing was, Al my husband, had just been to see Seger before he walked into the bar and into my life.
Here is how my story goes.
Went out for a few drinks
With some friends to a bar
Rock N Roll Heaven
It wasn’t too far
Ordered a drink
Listened to the band
As I gazed around
Surprised what I found
I like what I see
You’re perfect for me
Every time I looked over
To sneak a peek
He was staring
Right back at me
Oh my have to meet this guy
Oh why am I so shy
All my friends were saying to me
Just go over go over and see
Just say hi
Okay I sigh
I’ll go over
But just to say hi
Walking over through the crowed bar
Almost there it seemed so far
I just shrugged as he walked away
Just my luck oh what a day
But this is not how my story ends
As I walk over to his friend
I introduce myself being direct
He must think that I am wrecked
Would you please introduce me to your friend
Forever grateful I’ll be to the end
So Bob introduced Al to me
The rest as they say is history
Back then I was normally a shy person and did not have enough confidence to just go up to a perfect stranger and ask them to introduce me to their friend. I think that night the stars were aligned or there was magic in the air. This meeting of the two of us was just meant to be.
