    I've heard that love happens
    But I'm not the type love happens to
    It happens to those primped up girls
    Who switch their hips when they walk
    Use their hands when they talk
    That's just the way it was

    And he was with her
    And her with him
    And those two were together
    But none of them were involved with me
    'Cause you see
    I'm what they would call a loner
    The type to sit up in a corner
    Not socialising
    Or mixing and matching with the people in the room
    And they would whisper behind their hands
    "Oh, she a *****"
    "She's just stuck up"
    But I paid them no mind
    Just bided my time
    Stayed posted up on the wall like a wall flower

    Until that day
    He appraoched me slight grin
    He bypassed the light-skinned divas
    He strolled right by the dark-skinned beauties
    To me sitting in my corner
    Watching life go by
    And he held out his hand to dance
    And dance we did

    We danced
    And danced
    And danced
    He whispered questions in my ear as he held me close
    And we exchanged breaths
    And all was right
    If only for the night
    For I knew it was impossible for him to want me
    It just couldn't be
    So many lovelier
    So many were better
    So why me?
    Why would he pick me?
    But still I danced in the dream
    Willing myself not to awake

    But surprise, surprise
    He said he enjoyed my company
    And he wanted to see me again
    He wanted to take my out of my corner
    To be with him
    And I had no idea what to say or do
    But nod

    Love happens to everyone
    And although I'm not the type love happens to
    Love happened to me

    This was soooooo awesome!!!!

    I felt like I was at the punch bowl watching the whole scene from across the room! You captured the essence of every emotion most, if not all, of us have felt at one time or another. And what a great feeling to be extended a simple hand to the dance floor!

    I felt this piece on so many levels! Thank you for sharing!!!!

    Love can happen to anyone, often when we least expect it. This was oh so endearing, and you captured that unexpected sweetness just so.
