There We Were - Poem by Ray Hansell

I thought love
Had passed me by
But then you looked
Me in the eye

I saw a smile
Cross your face
I finally was
In the right place

I said, hello
How are you?
You said I'm fine
What's new with you?

I asked, would you like
To maybe get some lunch
You said, not today
It felt like a knock out punch

For a moment
I almost froze
My heart sank
But only God knows

I realized
Right away
We'll not meet
On any day

But to my surprise
The next day you said
How about that lunch
I almost dropped dead

So we went to have coffee
We shared a bite to eat
I was so elated
That we got to meet

So from that day on
Little did we know
That just from that hello
Just how much love would grow
