Do you remember a day in K-Mart,
When you went to park the car,
I waited for you, right inside,
I wasn’t very far,
but in you came, your head down low,
and never looked my way–
I called out to you, once then twice-
ROBERT!” I would say–
that happened to us more than once,
and now it’s happened twice
When I’ve been dreaming dreams of you –
It wasn’t very nice!
But then, I think, perhaps you are
Unaware that I am near,
Like in that crowded Kmart store,,
You do not see or hear.

SAndra’s Footnote–this was a true experience that happened years ago when we lived in the San Fernando valley and often shopped at a K-Mart store nearby.
