English Poetry

As you run around frantic, fighting a busy day

Keep your eyes open, find him, you just may


He will be one; you never before set your eyes upon

Don’t let go of the moment, for he might soon be gone


Setting him apart, will be his genuine smile

Among known masks, that you have known a while


Conversation will turn into a heart-to-heart talk

Before u know, many miles, with him u will walk


Thoughts which were embedded, deep in your heart

Will be expressed, uninhibitedly, right from the start


With him, you will find, you can be you

Happiness in your heart, you discover anew


After he leaves, in a crowd, you will feel alone

You will miss him, a stranger you have always known
