    the unexpected
    you'd think I'd be used to it
    after all these years

    when you get that call
    seemingly out of the blue
    or something happens

    had no idea
    you didn't see it coming
    thought you would have

    anticipation
    the things you think will happen
    don't manifest

    got to give it up
    expectations don't pan out
    gotta stay open

    A shot in the dark
    A slight tap on the shoulder
    Leaves me unbalanced

    Let me catch my breath
    I wasn't expecting that
    Next time, alert me

    tensions steellike grasp
    acknowledging those who have
    they forgot my name

    walking in the sun
    a roar and then sparks of light
    suddenly the rain

    when u feel within
    the grace of it yet not know
    it can be harder

    A rude awaken
    tappin the call manifest
    i thought i knew all

    The unexpected
    The surprise, the quiet stroke
    of the midnight hour

    The gentle kiss on
    the cheek, unexpected but
    appreciated

    a friendly hello
    and smiles given suddenly
    I wasn't looking

    Tap on the shoulder
    a soft whisper in the ear
    let me know you're near

    if I live to be
    100 I'll always feel
    lil bits of surprise

    when things come my way
    when I wasn't looking there
    funny, isn't it?
