In all the dust
and chaos of
the universe
I stumbled on you

Random particles
who happened
perchance, to be
at the same spot
at the same time
in the vastness
of where we could be

In all the millions
of probabilities
and the clutter
of the planet
I stretched my hand
to shake yours
an introduction
and as our lifelines
and our eyes
I knew in an instant
you were kindred

No space
no distance
can change
the intertwining
of these lifelines now
energetic bonds
keep us bound
regardless of time or
