How I Met My Husband-A Poem

Source

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.

A.A. sorry for the delayed reply. It is all true. Yes most bar encounters never seem to work out but this one sure did.

This almost sounded like a fairy tale, too good to be true. Most bar encounters never end this seamlessly. I'm moving to Canada! Thank you for sharing.

Susan - I was always telling Laurel that the only time I ever met a decent guy is when I wasn't looking for him:)! When she least expected it - she met a pretty nice guy and they have been dating for quite a while. (I'm not sure if I'm voting for him up yet:) lol

My best friend and I used to listen to the Bob Seger (Silver Bullet)! I never got to see them in Concert though:( I loved the video too! Every one of his songs is awesome.

Sounds like you picked a winner - he still inspires a good poem.

It seems like you always meet that someone special when you least expect it, (or so I've heard LOL). If you are actively looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right, forget it, nothing but frustration.

You are both fortunate that you met each other on that night and everything worked, eventually! Nice Story Susan!
