Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Tryst
 
Just imagine two kids when,
tricycles held coloured streamers.
They both were way back then,
two young idyllic dreamers.

As children would, they’d play,
and got so very close.
They thought like that they’d stay,
but that’s not what life chose...

Dave left at seventeen,
he said goodbye to Sue.
True romance had never been,
just friendship twixt the two.

Sue just turned thirteen years,
when Dave left town for good.
She spent many nights in tears,
inconsolable in mood.

Dave tried out two careers,
before he found his way.
His vocation twenty years,
holy life worked out okay.

To Sue life wasn’t kind,
widowed after just two years.
Husband John had been a find,
Sue spent many days in tears.

(Some years later)

A World Wide Web social site,
put Dave and Sue in touch.
E-mails sent would be alright,
see how life turned out and such.

Hotel at Sue’s request,
was where they planned to meet.
Sue’s main aim... look her best,
and knock Dave off his feet.

Dave’s heart said, ‘You must go,
to meet your first true love.’
A part of him said ‘So,
you must trust in God above.’

Sue was riding on a crest,
she would see her long lost friend.
Their meeting would be blessed,
clear message she would send.

Dave went in and looked around,
quite nervous to be there.
Face he knew could not be found,
he had to stop and stare.

‘So Dave when in doubt,’
the Bishop once had said.
‘God will help you sort things out,
slow down and use your head.’

Dave looked around the place,
not ready yet for running.
He caught sight of her face,
she was absolutely stunning.

Sue stood and said, ‘Good Lord.’
Dave said, ‘No, just a priest.’
As his humour struck a chord,
peels of laughter both released.

Neither could stop staring,
as they talked and ate their food.
Both of them inside caring,
that the other felt as good.

Sue said, ‘I’d like to shout,
I’ve found you now at last.
I feel I’m stepping out,
of the shadows of my past.’

‘Strangely,’ then Dave sighed,
‘next week I leave church life.’
Sue held his hands and cried,
‘Are you looking for a wife...?’

Just imagine two kids when...
