She Sat Alone in a Crowded Room Full of Laughter
She was pleasantly surprized when he removed a tissue from his pocket to wipe away a tear.
Mary sat alone in a crowded room full of laughter and glee
She needed desperately to find hope and friends but both seemed to always flee
Oh, she'd had male friends, and they were nice but nothing seemed to click
She'd had female friends but nothing close enough to stick
She thought about the old country song, " Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places "
Is that what She'd done? Thinking back and seeing all those blank faces
She'd thought about moving to a quiet little town away from the big city
but something held her back, was it self pity?
She knew feeling sorry for herself was just a wasted emotion
Yet her tears fell endlessly when alone and away from any commotion
She found herself sitting in a mall watching the people pass by
Then she noticed the marquee showing her kind of movie, the ones that made her cry
she purchased a ticket, sat in the balcony alone in the front row
Soon a young man asked if he could join her. He introduced himself as Joe
She nodded " yes " and he quietly sat down
Soon they were talking and laughing. What happened to her frown?
She was pleasantly surprised when he removed a tissue from his pocket wiping away a tear
The scene was so sad. She was choking back tears, fearing he would think her weird
When the movie ended, Joe asked if she would join him for a bite to eat
She answered " yes " and thought " Oh what an unexpected treat "
There was an all-night diner with a small dance floor close by
They walked hand-in-hand, her thinking, " Don't you dare cry, "
This is the day you've been longing for so long
" Enjoy the moment, and thank you God for sending Joe along "
When they were seated Joe popped some quarters in the juke box and lo-and-behold he played her favorite song
Wind Beneath My Wings
As he held her close and guided her across the floor
She whispered softly, " oh my, who could ask for anything more?
