The Magical Mystic Mystery Man

He walks around the neighborhood
And stops to talk a while
I never saw the man before
But recognize the smile
And try to place him, best I can
This magical mystic mystery man

He comes to me and takes my hand
And says you arenít of wealth or fame  
But yet they call you as a queen
For you possess her very name
He stares at me as though to scan
My inner self, this mystery man

Then pointing to my hand he notes
Your ring is gone, I plainly see
It fell into the muddy pond
This secret known by only me
A ring of gold slipped from my hand
Into the mind of the mystic man

He then looks on to future days
A mountain journey you will make
A Colorado mountain top
A trip that I am soon to take
How does he know my travel plan
This magical mystic mystery man?

Then curiously I seek to know  
The answers to my destiny
Who will I marry, knowing well
My German love itís sure to be
He comes from the Amazon River land
Says the magical mystic mystery man

I would never see this man again
He wasnít really from that place
He happened through the neighborhood
And came to gaze upon my face
At times I yearn to understand
The wondrous mind of the mystic man

So abundantly bestowed to few
These powers of a psychic hue
He knew my life by the touch of my hand
This magical mystic mystery man

One day knocking on my door
He told me of a talent so true
Then he showed me a picture of you

Sy, Thanks, dear friend, for always reading

Nameless, Thank you. Your comments overwhelm

Balladeer, Thanks, Master Poet

Jeffery, Did you understand his Portuguese? Thank you for your little poem

weaubleau, Your response is very kind. Thanks

Mistikman, Sorry if I stole your  name. Do you have psychic powers?.Thank you so much for reading and commenting

PDV< Yep this is a true story. Glad you like it. Thanks

Denise, my guardian angel, always there to read. Thanks

Liz
