If It Had Not Been For Chemistry - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I have never been here before.
To explore such views,
With anyone quite like you...
Full adventure and unafraid to explore.

Never before have I felt the student,
To allow myself to be taught...
By someone who brings,
A different insight to things.

If you had gone on another path,
I would have sat unchallenged.
And taken too much time,
To eventually let doubt have its way.

I can say today,
I am happy you found me sitting.
And owe meeting you to patience,
Somehow you knew for you it stayed.

I have never been here before.
To explore such views,
With anyone quite like you...
Full adventure and unafraid to explore.

'If it had not been for chemistry,
You and I would have only been here to see...
Just another someone else to forget and ignore,
As we continued on our separate journeys.'
