That you hadn’t appeared
A little shy
Around the corner
I’m looking for Anna
I think you said
And proceeded to tell me of our mutual friend.
That I hadn’t sat beside you in the kitchen
That first day
And listened to you talk
And thought you the leader of the group
And felt a little awed.
That I hadn’t read your words of congratulation
And smiled so wide
Because you were the first to write the way I felt inside.
I can’t wish I’d never met you,
Only wish I’d met you sooner.
