A Close Call
Festival Saturday, A Collection
Pretty bratty weather for festival Saturday
I've waited months for this and finally it happened
Hottest ticket in the East
I was outside in my black trench coat and cap
Sitting in a lawn chair, freezing and shivering
Fingers almost numb
Partly covered in a red umbrella to keep the wind off
But it was well worth a chance to see him
Up close and personal
What an evening it was!
I can't believe I plucked up the courage
To get his signature and give to the man
A freehand pencil sketch made especially for him
Too bad I had to fold it up and put it in my pocket
So the wind wouldn't knock it out of my hand
Seemed like one of Mother Nature's dirty jokes
It was an evening for four
A red sky, licked with thin, orange, flaming cirrus clouds
Shone into the room
We marveled at the sight as we dined
I remember him dressed finely in his charcoal slacks and
Smooth speckled shirt, which looked so good on him
Our guests shared stories and told jokes
And we laughed, occasionally glancing at each other
Sitting across from me, he glided his foot up my leg,
Taking me by surprise
They left us alone later
We mellowed out with the lights down low,
Dancing to some sultry bossa nova by Jobim on the stereo
Gazing out the window at that fiery red sky
Enjoying it as we enjoyed each other
A Close Call
I saw him wheeled into the room where I sat waiting
Tubes in his nose, an IV in his arm
Kissing him repeatedly, I wept profusely,
Fearing that I would've lost him
I felt his warm hand caressing my head
I heard him whisper to me, "It's alright."
I was alarmed when I got that phone call
Having been told what'd happened
He was supposed to be on his way home
I rushed to be with him
I was in hysterics, nearly losing my mind
He gave me quite a scare
It was a close call
I wanted to stay with him all night
But they wouldn't let me
So I went home, in hopes that he'd be better
In the morning
