Expecting So Little, Seeing So Much

We never saw so much

We never expected so little

They lit up the night

And the show was worth what we paid

We sat back and took it in

No one said a thing

There was nothing left to be said

So we all just watched

In amazement

In anticipation

Out of respect and awe

And then it was over

As quickly as it began

No grand finale

No one  to thank us for coming

And as we walked away

The simple thought slipped in

That this very evening

Was never really

For us at all
