Another Who

If you and I had never met,
I wonder where we’d be,
Perhaps in line, a foot apart,
While getting groceries.
I’d glance at you just fleetingly,
The way I always do;
You’d mean no more than anyone
To me, another who.
And you would maybe look at me
And think you like my style,
But never would you say a thing
To make the wait worthwhile.
We’d take our bags and carry them
Back to our lonely cars,
Without a thought within our minds
The fate that could be ours.  Copyright 2013 © Sonya Annita Song

  1. Another fabulous gem! 🙂

    1. It’s more like a rock that got into the glitter box but glad you liked it! 🙂

      1. Too self-deprecating! 😉

  2. To the best of my knowledge we never have met.

    1. I guess virtual meetings don’t count then. You would know me by my exceptional tortoiseshell coloring, white boots, and carefree saunter.

  3. If I met my spouse now at his age…not even a glance! lol good imagery about being in a grocery store!

    1. You completely get it. It is equally about how fortunate we are to have our partners as it is about what if we hadn’t met them. 🙂

  4. Yes indeed I know this ALL to well!
