Sometimes life has things for us in hiding
surprises we are not allowed to see
and all of a sudden, the veil is lifted
and our surprise is here for us, and free.
Have you ever met another person
someone you talk and know, here I am home?
The better you know, the more you talk
the further your thoughts and hopes will roam.
You know that feeling, it is mutual
you know the other feels the same
and still, maybe the times has not been right yet
and not too long, you only memorize the name.
But then, all of a sudden, unexpected
the person walks right back into your life.
Energetic, strong, and here’s that connection
that threatens to become rife.
You talk for hours, holding on and knowing
the other person walks into your heart.
The conversations become more personal
careful still but playing an important part.
It stays like this, you wait for more,
progress is made, the sun starts to shine
A step forward, smiles, jokes, and laughter
and you know, your emotions are to align
Then, unexpected, without a warning,
The common bond, it breaks apart
confused you try to understand it
but then, the other simply breaks your heart.
And here, once more, you’re sitting lonely
and asking yourself what joke was I the victim of?
How can this happen, I’m not delusional
But maybe I’m just not allowed to love…
