It started with a plastic bucket on his head

Waiting in line for the wet ride ahead

Laughing, joking and having fun

Sneaking the little man onto Top Gun

In and out of the turn stall, enjoying y'all

It all began in a moment
With all the right components
Moments stolen, Moments stolen

He had a hunch

I'd call and ask him to lunch

He made reservations for Nola's

He ordered whisky and I ordered cola.
Two hours go by listening to his situation

His victimization became my infatuation.

It all began in a moment
With all the right components
Moments Stolen....Moments Stolen

The boys football game led us to the Rainforest Cafe,

A street performance, a stroll on the pier and an overnight stay.
A friendship was developing
with a simple Chili’s coloring.
Water fights, movies and concerts,
even an introduction to the parents.

It all began in a moment
With all the right components.
Just me and you and the
noon rendezvous.
Moments Stolen, Moments Stolen.

Endless conversation, unveiled a different situation

Friendship was the cover and in a moment, it was over.

A late night office song and dance
asking to give him another chance
A small spark ignited a flame
In a moment I removed the blame

Moments Stolen, Moments Stolen
Moments Stolen, Moments Stolen

Moments Stolen, Moments Stolen
It all began in a moment
With all the right components

Wow! I liked that. The unresolved end could have gone either way, though I imagine it went to reinforce the relationship and not into a dissolution.
Reviewed by Linda Settles
I never experienced the kind of stolen moments you write of here--having married my first love 23 years ago. I can only imagine the hurt of betrayal and disappointment that you write of here but I can sense the heartbreak.

Reviewed by Felix Perry
Definately strong song lyrics, painful and hurting but also not forgetting that not all the stolen moments were good nor bad which is the way of love...

Reviewed by Mary Lacey, Desertrat

A wonderful write about a developing friendship seemingly disguising a love affair. Great style.
