Why do we pass as strangers ...........Poetry

We pass as strangers on the curve
at the red light
in the store

Yet I will not pass again
at least not like this
not as before

I have to smile at least
and its a real smile
I made it myself

So just smile back if you will
I'll no longer put my
feelings on a shelf

I may even say that's
a pretty dress
or a beautiful child

Now why is this so strange
to say hello
a gift so real

When did we forget how to share
how to care
how to feel

Once I thought
no I knew that
I was a lone man living

But we cannot live so alone
you and I
so let's begin giving




A poet or a photographer sometimes can feel quite alone ,
for the hub page friends I have found -thank you !

Outstanding! You uplift and right my ship with such grace and equanimity of word. Perhaps I made my smile today, or perhaps you did.

You made me smile about making the smile yourself, but it's true. We create smiles so why don't we share them generously? Thoughtful!

This made me smile Ed. Yes, sitting on one side of the PC screen can get rather lonely. Enjoyed this very much and thank you for being a friend. Hugs.
