It is almost too hard to believe

40 years ago this day I was asked on my first date

To downtown Buffalo, NY we went as teenagers

Buffalo Braves played the Chicago Bulls


Me in my blue dress with the red rose

You in your Marauders jacket and jeans

In the nosebleed section of Memorial Auditorium

There the magic began


My knight in shining armor

Ready to take me for a hot dog and loganberry

With your brother and his girlfriend in their Cutlass

Getting the nod the date was a go


It was the start of something great

You and me against the world

Our dreams just beginning

With no end in sight


Our dreams had their twists and turns

Love, loss, sadness

Yet we had one another

To guide us through
