The Anniversary Waltz
By ©Richard Budig 1999

The Anniversary Waltz came on today
Playing out of the radio into my quiet room
And suddenly it all came back to me
Scenes from years and years ago
The night I called the radio station
And requested they play that song
Because it was my folks' anniversary
And sure enough they played it
And sure enough I had the radio on loud
And I remember how nothing happened
No looks passed between them
No touch of hands across the table
Dad got a funny look on his face
And mom just chewed away on something
And I sat there wondering if this was love
If this's how it finally works out
The Anniversary Waltz playing away
In the dead space between two people
Who don't seem to see each other anyway
