In Memoriam To A Stranger - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

I know I would have liked the man,
his facial features show him as he was,
a man of genuine humanity,
it's one who always can
be the charisma that we need,
would you permit me to imagine
that he is just as sad as I
about the squandered opportunity
we could have had, just to shake hands.
