Life is full of surprises, and sometimes we just can’t help the way that we react to them.  Some of those surprises we just can’t prepare for no matter how hard we try.  All we can do is hope that there will be another opportunity, and the next time we won’t be caught off guard.  The next time we can hope we don’t fall too hard.

He falls too hard this time,

But for him the bells don’t chyme.

Even though he feels it so,

This time he’ll watch her go.

He’ll think about her and how he fell so hard.

Wonder how such a woman, could catch him off guard.

Many a night, he’ll lie awake and wonder.

Could this loss be his greatest blunder.

A time may come when this passes by,

But that now just seems a distant lie.

What he feels now has taken root.

A feeling like this he won’t dispute.

Even though he feels it so,

This time he’ll watch her go.
