A momentary glance at you
A quick smile exchange
And my desire to speak to anyone else
Right now just fades.
Because you are enough.
Almost everyone else is just extra.
Your kindness, your gentle eyes,
Takes me to another era –
Where I never stopped being a little girl
And you never lost that childish smile
Where we can both freely say what’s on our minds,
Unfiltered; at least for that mini while.
I may not even know you long enough
Or well enough to call this fond feeling a pure love
But what can I do if my heart has decided you are a kindred spirit
Angelically sent into my world with the function to uplift
Even when we talk of subjects dark, grim, and unpleasant,
Your company alone is still one of life’s most marvelous presents.
Upon running into you,
I only wish you knew
The way I instantly feel
A flurry of excitement
But also a calmness more real.
A minute before you walked in my day,
I felt like I had a million things to say
A minute after you left, I felt my socializing was done
For the day.
Not because you drain me
But because I feel fulfilled
Full to the brim with contentment
At this kindred spirit friendship, so splendid.
We may be from different worlds
I don’t expect them to always synergetically collide
But when they do, it blows my mind
And when they don’t, regardless,
I feel happy and blessed
To know someone that uplifts by a simple smile,
Even if I only see you once a very long while.
It suffices to enrich my life,
Because you are so enough.
