'I Would Have Said...'

Wednesday's prompt from Poetic Asides: write about a life changing experience.

I would have said ‘it was the day I saw you,’
I’d rather not: the phrase is beat and common,
And it was not that bold ‘first sight’ sensation
That comes in movies, rarely in life,
But that’s the day when filled with quiet wonder,
And unaware still of what was coming,
I caught a glimpse of life that lay before me
For me to take, without looking back.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
