Roller Skate Magic

roller skate magic
brought my parents together
both of them surprised

my mother was not looking
my father was
a voice told him she was the one

roller skate magic
he could not take his eyes off her
she noticed him not

my father did some research
discovered she worked for his cousin
would not leave her alone after that

roller skate magic
a place my father did not want to be
until he arrived

my parents might not have ever gotten together
if my dad’s car had not been on the blink
a friend had to talk him into going roller skating

a great move for my sister and brother and me
roller skate magic
don’t discount it until you try.
