You almost walked past me (poem)

20 Aug

Love can appear any place, any time

You almost walked past me

You almost walked past me on that day.
I almost wandered another way.
Yet something made me stop, take a pause,
A random choice with no special cause.
Maybe it was the view, a nice sky,
But in truth, I will never know why.

I was standing there when you came near.
Something made you choose to stop just here.
Two strangers admiring the view,
Two strangers seeking for the new.
Others were there, it was a nice spot,
But just how many, I’ve now forgot.

You made a comment, spoken out loud,
About the funny shape of a cloud.
Talking to yourself, that’s what you done,
But from those words, our future begun.
I laughed a little, you looked at me,
And with your laugh, you set my heart free.

Now many years later, here we stand,
Content with life, standing hand in hand.
Both so glad of that moment of fate,
You found my heart and opened its gate.
I found your heart, you opened it wide,
Together in life, our hearts reside.
