Friendship Between Two

A smile from a perfect stranger.
Eyes meet and connect without any time to wager.

Not a single word spoken, met by a hug, 
an embrace tender, more than a touch.

Longing to know more about this new person. Taking a 
moment to reflect and wrap my head around it. 

My mind rushes like tides on a beach, 
this new friendship warms me like summer's heat.  

Finding magic in eyes that speak more than words ever could.
I knew in that moment this friendship was true.

I glimpse back and I smile, share and care without fear.

I open my heart to welcome anew, 
a friendship, I hope to see blossom and bloom.
