How many are the ways in which we get surprised
Just thinking of the word makes my mind wander
There are some that seem to be meant for the good
And some that just make us sit back and ponder.

Nothing like the newly weds that plan for the future
When he sees her, gets a smile and maybe tears in his eyes
They think they have the plans laid all in a row
But think of the look when she greets him with “Surprise”.

They make all the plans and spend the months in wait
The little boy who is coming to spend time with the guys
Blue paint and the sports decor that seems to fit the theme
Then along comes the long-awaited by girl…. “Surprise”.

Years have passed and stress has taken its toll
Nothing seems to work any more no matter what he tries
Could it get any worse as they seem to drift apart
Unexpectedly coming home and opening the closet… “Surprise”.

Ok, so maybe I’m a little cynical at times… no surprise.
