She Gave Me a Chance

She stood there,

Leaning against the

Smiling at us all,

Her black dress,

Clung to her ripe

All I could do was sit
and gape,

I was mesmerized,

I wanted to ask her

But I was filled with
fear and doubt,

She moved towards me,

Her eyes intent, this
was my chance,

To ask her to the
homecoming dance,

Her auburn hair,

Cascaded down and
framed her face,

While I stared numbly
into space,

How could words elude

When there was so much I
needed to say,

My heart was ready but
my tongue got in my way,

 I stuttered, I stammered,

My heart began to

I smiled, and then the
right words I found,

What magic did she

That kept me under

She was beautiful, I

She was patiently
waiting still,

And I gave her my
biggest grin,

Life was good and my
confidence soared within,

“Would you, could you,

Give my heart a chance,

And go with me to the
Homecoming dance?”

She was trembling,

Obviously she had felt
my stress,

She smiled with relief
and said, “Yes!”

We were young,

And that moment was our

What better way to
connect heart to heart,

We fell in love,

And found true romance,

I was thankful she gave
me a chance,

She was bold,

Our grandkids will be

How she loved me and
gave me a chance.

(A Positive Man Meets a
Negative Woman)

My view of
the world changed,

When I
learned to really believe,

In the
electrical field around me,

And the messages
I could send and receive,


The women
were always attracted,

They couldn’t
resist my magnetic pull,

I had an
ample supply of protons,

So my
waiting arms stayed full,


With friends
I attended a wedding reception,

I stayed
neutral at the start,

But I became
more and more positive,

I’d never
give away my heart,


I was
friendly and constantly smiling,

My positive
vibes were over the top,

But when the
hair on my neck started rising,

I thought my heart might stop,


Sparks were
flying everywhere,

The very moment
she entered the door,

High voltage
she was generating,

As she
swished across the floor,


She brought
in a negative attitude,

Life had
been especially rough that day,

She was
ready to cause a little friction,

She had definitely been rubbed the wrong way,


I left
behind positive footprints,

As I crossed
the floor to see,

Who this
negative lady really was,

And what she
would mean to me,


I was met
with a little resistance,

Her static
gave me a quick shot,

The charge
we shared was imbalanced,

Though I thought
she was extremely hot,


Normally the
positives cancel out,

The negatives
in my way,

But she was
certainly not neutral,

And she didn’t
ask me to stay,


My words
continued to be soothing,

And I finally
convinced her to dance,

My protons
were definitely working,

And improving
my one true chance,


Two nervous
systems were connecting,

As we two-stepped
around the floor,

We generated
a lot of electricity,

But nothing
that could be stored,


The night
was over much too soon,

My heart had
grown too large,

Her electrons
continued to flow,

But I had
lost my charge,


She disappeared
quickly into the night,

But her
current had made its mark,

My heart
would never be the same,

It had been
singed by her sparks,


She left
behind an electrified scene,

And a note
to call her soon,

There’s still
a chance for true romance,

Sharing electrons
under the moon.
