I saw you from the corner of my eye

Where you were hiding

Tucked away deep inside my heart and mind

Just hidden well enough for me to find

(Yes, I’m still finding. . . )

Your conversation caught my listening ear

Quiet, as you are,

But loud enough for me to always hear

A laugh, like music, keeping memory near

Music of the heart.

I’ll see you again soon, my funny friend

Like Chance pranking Fate

I’ll know the day has come—the where and when—

Around the corner of my life again,

Your familiar face.
