When Good Things Happen, April 3, 2005

 

they walked around the park
chatter was hiding the sound of nervous heartbeats
the sun was out, promising them no rain
not today
a day when good things could happen
they wandered down the path
to the pond, where the duck swam
in pairs
they fed the graceful birds
and stood in the coolness by the clear water
he reached for her hand
and she blushed but did not pull away,
and held his hand back
she was overcoming her shyness
for today
a day when good things could happen


under the shade of a willow tree
they stood in silence
watching the ducks and
chatting about happy thoughts
for both were happy they could share the
company of the other
but it was not all that was shared
their first kiss came shortly after
though in the mid afternoon
they were young teenagers
and timid, they could just be free
for today
a day when good things could happen


she sat near the edge of the pond
and stuck her bare feet in
the water was warm and she smiled
he watched her and smiled
he took out his pocketknife
carefully carving their names
into the willow tree that shaded the young spirits
both wondering what was the feeling inside
although they knew and didn’t need to question
on today
a day when good things could happen
