so close


how far is a stranger
from the center of your soul

the width of the universe
the depth of an ocean
or just the distance between two people
caught in a glance

how close is a friend

if they cross paths
can they know
will they wonder
will they miss that soul-meeting moment
and stay separate
worlds apart
without ever knowing

how close they were…
