Encounters

We encounter
circumstances that
can challenge us, that
can test us, that can
allow us to react.

We encounter
people in our daily
walk.

Sometimes they
can inspire us.
Sometimes they
can discourage us.

But no matter
how these encounters
happen so unexpectedly,
we learn to receive them,
we learn to accept them,
we learn to believe or
to forget them.

Until you came along.
You saved me from my
saddest longing.

You’re not only
a friend needed but
a friend who stays in
my heart forever.
