Poem 47: The Unexpected

Last updated on May 6th, 2024 at 10:59 am

The stars were out,
Bright and gleaming,
People were all around,
The music was streaming.


The warm weather hugged me,
As I danced about,
I looked over and caught your eye,
And wanted to shout.


I didn’t know why,
But my heart pulled me to you,
As soon as you spoke,
That’s when I knew.


Love overwhelmed me,
You were the one,
It was unexpected,
Neither turned to run.


A place, where neither should be,
But fate brought us there,
Only to follow our hearts,
Nothing else will ever compare.


Things may be unexpected,
In life you must play,
I never thought love,
Would take me far away.


It brought me to a new country,
My overall life was affected,
But I am ever so grateful,
For the great unexpected.

  3. ‘The Great Unexpected’… Easy to see the UK with a somewhat jaundiced eye if you’re a ‘local’, especially compared to the perceived adventure/possibility of the States, Refreshing to see the ol’ place through a different lens for once! #Prose4T
