FOUND GUILTY!

I was found guilty of committing the crime
A repeat offender – I’ve done years of time
A life sentence now, plus a few
Doing the time, for the crime
I’ve committed with you
 
Not all perfect, I’ll be the first to say
But all so worth it, every last day
Never wanting it to end
You’re my lover and my best friend
We met, we married, we’ve had such fun
Raised three boys
We’ve both wanted to run
 
You’ve stuck with me through all of the pain
Even when I was driving you insane
We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, but never
Has our love once died
So Ha, ha, to the relatives who said,
We’d not survive
Yes, I’ll admit here today,
I’m still guilty of committing the crime
If I could go back and change one thing
All I’d want is a bigger diamond ring (giggles)
Happy Valentine’s Day Al
My lover, my partner in crime
My BEST PAL, of all time

How I Met My Husband – A Poem

November 28, 1987
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

Oh baby
I like what I see
Baby Baby
You’re perfect for me
I said to the girls
              Check out this guy
Across the bar
             No one by his side
He looks so fine
            He looks divine
Oh what a doll
            Over six feet tall
Oh baby
I like what I see
Baby baby
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 
Oh baby
I like what I see
Baby baby
You’re perfect for me
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
Oh baby
I like what I see
Baby baby
You’re perfect for me
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.
