The stars ordained our meeting,
The brief exchange of glances,
The sharing of two lives
complementary to one another.

Like Yin &Yang,

Fate has brought us together
and now apart.

My heart aches with the intensity
of the instability of my nerve
at the time of our first encounter,
Which I then had to counter
by remembering to breathe,
So I could say Hello to you,

My Inspiration.
