These Brief Encounters

These Brief Encounters The elderly women, such a bewildered look The studious young one, lost within a book The old man with a cantankerous lost smile The cute little child solemnly plays for a while The angry young man, showing all distain The struggling family with nothing to gain The friendly young woman, brightens your day The solemn, lost lonely one, with nothing to say The single mom, making ends meet The drug addict, feeling such defeat The drunken man, stumbles once again The working man, one day it will all end All these people you meet as you go about your day Each, everyone of them, a reason that you meet today These brief meetings, perhaps a lesson to reencounter To open your heart and mind to these brief encounters

There is always a reason why you meet someone
