The Night Everything Changed 3/20/13~ Based on a personal experience

They say that in a moment everything can change.

I've found that it's true.

That night when the aroma of coffee and coca filled the air,

Time stood still, and then started again with renewed adrenaline.

A friend to me.

(That's all I'd ever dared hope you'd be)

We got up to leave,

(But just then, some of your friends approached)

You left with them, my heart sank.

With a sigh I left as well,

But when I descended the stairs you were there, alone, waiting for me.

They say that in a moment everything can change,

That night under the stars,

(With God as my witness)

Everything changed.

The walk across that parking lot,

Didn't last nearly long enough.

Your brown eyes sparkled as you held open the door.

I murmured a "Thank you."

The door closed.

They say that in a moment everything can change,

As I took my seat,

(I couldn't help but sneak a glance at you.)

I knew that everything had changed,

And there was no going back.
