Sentimental Lady


She was a freshman while I was senior, but I had a crush on her anyway. I think Leslie (I’ve since forgotten her last name,) figured it out the second time I asked her to dance.

However, she was not interested in me and I knew it at the time, but I was jus’ bold enough to keep asking her to dance. The song I most remember dancing to with her is Bob Welch’s, “Sentimental Lady.”

Why the words to that song seemed to strike a chord with me at the time, I don’t know: “Sentimental gentle wind, blowing through my life again, Sentimental lady, Gentle one.”

However it has stuck with me over the years.

Every time I heard that tune, I remember dancing with Leslie and I get a warm and fuzzy feeling deep inside. I think it’s exactly what a good memory should feel like.
