I barely knew you

A laugh or two here

A life story there

But it was enough…

Enough to know you are unique,

Intriguing, genuine, special

Mystery juxtaposed with openness

Raw, vulnerable; an old soul like me–

Soul mates if you please.

You had to go as quickly as you came

I know you aren’t mine to keep

Still my heart aches a bit, cut to the deep

Perhaps by chance we’ll meet again

Another time, another place.

Our soul connection cannot break:

Rocker boy leather; woman draped in lace.
