The People We Meet


Life is about the people we meet
Randomly placed next to your seat
The stranger you helped the other day
The unexpected love that got away
Some stay all your lifetime through
Others will in time come to leave you
True friendships are worth the fight
Be careful not to hold on too tight
To the randoms who aren't worth your while
They who bring forth tears instead of smile
Strangers we get to know are our future to be
You choose who you keep and who you set free
Life is about the relationships we make
It changes a little with every hand you shake
Don't waste time on the uselessness of regret
Past can't be changed, no undoing of those already met
From the touch of a hand to the faces we see
Chances given, turn into the life of you and me

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
