A Poem - Lost And Found

Updated on February 16, 2015

Is anything really lost, when you know right where it is?

I was lost and empty. Then you walked in.


I thought at first I'd found you,

And... Oh, my gosh! I had.

But you had looked around you,

And things were looking bad!


The time we spent out wandering

"False starts" and all the rest,

Had really had me pondering

How to find my love, the best?


You walked into that dining room

And looked around to see.

My heart did a big Kaboom!

When you walked so close to me.


You sat down at a table

And seemed waiting for someone.

I prayed as best I was able

That someone wouldn't come.


You saw me fervently praying

It touched your every part,

Then decided you'd be staying,

And that was our big start.


The "someone" didn't show,

You played lots with your food.

I saw your glances to know,

And judge my every mood.


I asked the waitress to deliver

A note that I had written,

She smiled. I started to quiver.

It said "With you I'm smitten."


I watched you as you read it,

You smiled, and blushed I'm sure.

I surely couldn't have said it,

But you looked happy and demure.


That was 50 years ago.

It seems like yesterday.

Hair once brown... turned to snow.

Thank God I learned to pray.

Love at first sight....

Wishing you all the happiness you take the time to pray for.

Not 50 years yet.  Only 40, but we will make it, God willing!
