Just a Litle passing thought


Each person who touches my life leaves a footprint, in the sands of time,
If only for an instance that their life crosses mine
That oft unnoticed imprint just for moments there
Something in that fleeting meeting just for us to share

A touch, aword,,a smile, it may be something brief,
Nothing said to indicate that we really meet,
Just standing close together in a crowd or queue
Is enough to start a spark of contact, between me and you

You may look and wonder briefly just who or what I am
I in turn I may catch your eye with the slightest scan,
Of perhaps a hint of friendship, but not a spoken word
Breaks the air of silence, not a sound is heard.

An imprint in the sands of time is there between us two,
In the realms of the subconscious an imprint bright and new
And it may resurface at some long and distant date
For nothing is impossible in the hands of fate.
