When we met, it was serendipity.
You were unfamiliar in a familiar sort of way.
Glancing at you across the subway car, you smiled.
It was like a song lyric I once heard.
I stepped on the platform, thinking nothing of the moment.
Yet, it filled my mind for days.
A chance meeting at a coffee shop.
There you were.
My eye caught yours, transfixed upon each other.
Spontaneously you walked over to me.
Haley’s Comet come full turn.
Your flip-flop slapping against your heel.
You didn’t hesitate.
I was glad.
You sat, I smiled.
You smirked, I was hooked.
Within a moment we knew.
Turns out I loved you all my life.
Only I never knew.
Some I had to try.
Others had to grow on you.
Me and you, is effortless.
I don’t need to try.
I don’t feel like it’s a burden.
An effortless love is a true love.
The best love.
