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.

What a lovely poem – a nice cheery one for a dreary Thursday #Prose4T
Thank you. It is very dreary indeed isn’t it? Where is that wonderful sun we had on Tuesday? The weather really is odd at the moment.

‘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
Thank you David. Very nice of you to say. Thanks for popping by and commenting.
