Coming within a couple years

and just a fluttering of miles

breathing across the distance, six degrees of separation

and a draw that can’t be explained



We almost breathed the same air



20 years later what was meant to be

won’t be denied under any circumstances



I came across the distance, without hesitation

and a pull that was strong enough to cause pain

And now we breathe the same air

and share the same space



and I feel like the one that was never meant to be

has gotten a second chance with her grace



The Universe may fix it’s mistakes

even if they seem small in the grandness of space

just two souls that with situations they lived

hoping that the cosmos had more to give



and I was closer to the edge with less to hold on to

but her hand was stronger than it had any right

to be


and held on to me.


The sun rises everyday again.
