Here and now


We got here fast, you and I, wherever this happens to be.  Accidents happen but this one makes me happy.  We share something real or imagined, a past in common, a future in question, a moment in the now.

Can I walk by your side for a while?  Can I drink my fill of you and be refreshed?  I have nothing to offer in return.  I am poor you see.  And you do see.  I wander my own path, lost, hungry, propelled by a declining spirit.  

I don’t know what I’ve found in your smile, your words, your care.  I’m just glad I found it.
