Crossing Paths

Each day on my run

I see you there

Enjoying the sun

Without a care

You nod as I pass

I do the same

But no more than that

Like some child's game

I always look back

I have to see

If you are still there

Looking at me

And you always are

Yes, every time

You're looking my way

Your eyes meet mine

And I fight the urge

To turn around

To see if we have

Some common ground

Then when I get home

I think of you

And wish that I had

Just carried through

So today I plan

To do just that

To at least say hi

Perhaps to chat

You're in the same place

And as I near

I slow to a walk

My intent clear

You rise to meet me

I stop and smile

You ask me to sit

And talk a while

The hours fly by

And we both know

That we're in love

At last, and so

We leave together

Each thankful for

Crossing paths and love

Forever more
