Alone and lost in thought
Thoughts of life to come and future unknown
Hope for a better tomorrow.
I leave most behind,
To acquire things long denied.
To see life beyond my horizon
Alone and quietly mulling…
Then you came along
Treading softly and gently as
Though on a rickety bridge.
A pleasant word you offered,
Enough to reveal deep seated wisdom
Curt and gentle but weighty and
Strong enough to arouse a liking,
Enough to help recognise a kindred spirit.
Fear and anxiety once boldly written
On my face, now lost as I’m smitten
By your gesture of friendship
And the nearest future isn’t so scary
With a friend as you to spend it with sweetly.
