Reticent to admit that I really liked him,
It was easier to notice what I rated as his faults.
But, as I stood there listening to his guitar
I started singing words that I could not halt.
His great delivery of the notes was astounding,
And with my fragile heart as blank as a slate,
I thought of all the music he’ll write upon it,
For now I know that he was always my fate.
