I almost walked by you. Then out of the corner of my eye, I noticed.
You were shining in the sunlight, shimmering colors reflecting from your beauty.
I had to turn aside and walk your way. An opportunity to meet you was before me.
As I walked over, your beauty mesmerized me. I could not take my eyes off of you.
You didn’t notice at first but as I walked toward you I reached out and you seemed to be ok with my presence.
In fact, you seemed to welcome the adoration. In your presence I became aware of a deep warmth.
I wanted to stay here forever, your tenderness and beauty, more intense close up.
I had to move on and leave you as my life took me in a different direction.
However, I will never forget your colors, your graceful presence and your effect upon my soul.
In a very real way, you will always be with me..
