A First Hello

And there you were
already saying
a first hello
exactly on time
before I was
quite ready.

You were
and nothing
like my wild mind
had imagined you
to be.

And now that
we’ve said
a first goodbye,
I wonder
if you’re quite ready
or exactly on time
for what you
imagine of me.

    as I pictured while reading this, your first meeting, I smiled, really big, and said aloud she will find all the love she gives.

      I already DO have love, don’t I, my friend. Can you imagine all the love in just 18 short days!? Haha! I bet I don’t stop smiling the whole freaking time….and for weeks afterwards. Thank you always for reading and commenting and caring.
