The People We Meet


Every path,

Every schedule change,

Every slight detour

Has the potential

To lead to something amazing.

Chance encounters

Followed by mystic events

Bringing us

Surprising gifts

In the people

We meet.

Missed appointments,

Delayed plans,

All tend to put us

In each others paths.

I can clearly see

How small changes

Small schedule mishaps,

Have brought you

Right here

To me.

A simple bus ride,

A lost application,

A last-minute invite.

All of these things

Influencing

Where we have been

And the people we meet.
