I must've known yu before
Come across ye by a random chance of fate
Should've heard people talk of yu
Had a hint that yu existed..
we've lived in the same city
i've walked the earth you've walked
Sure must've brushed past each other
once some obscure friday evening
when i must've been busy shopping
or waiting for movie tickets
We must've met at cross roads
waited at traffic signals together
Must've drenched ourselves
in the same first rain
some forgettable day of earlyJune
But it's a wonder
how life conspires to keep apart
two obvious soul~mates
and plays its secret games
builts a wall of glass in between
fills the air with fog, on both sides
and it takes a hell of time
for that fog to condense
and slide down as water, drop after drop
and it took long lonely years
to see the faint contours of yur face
on the other side
to come to know of your existence
and assure myself of assured company
twenty~two years one month nineteen days four hours and seven minutes
to be precise!
