You don’t know me well,
But I know you.
I’ve watched you endlessly from aground,
I follow your every move,
Sometimes in full view.
There are days when I’ve seen you glance,
But your eyes flitter pass me.
Then came a day I caught your full attention,
I remember the moment clearly,
You were standing on a green bridge,
And you looked down and saw me.
Your thoughts racing,
Your heart frantically pulsing,
The fear inside you triggering a surge of adrenalin,
I felt it all.
Your hands gripped the railing,
Your hair flying against the wind,
The tears spilling from your brown eyes,
Your teeth pinning down your bottom lip,
I prayed silently that you would stay afar.
This was not how I imagined our meeting to be.
Atlas the seconds that felt like minutes passed,
And you collapsed to the ground.
It was then that I realized,
I was always with you.
You need not know or see me,
Because I know and see you well.
