Dear Stranger, I’m glad we met.
You make my coffee every morning and draw a smiley face on my cup.
You hold the door open for me and say, “After you.”
I bet your heart is as beautiful as your smile.
You let me cut in front of you at the grocery store.
I drop a bag of candy and you pick it up.
You speak to me through a mask, engaging in muffled conversation.
You wave at me from your window like Queen Elizabeth.
You have dinner with me as we sit alone at a bar.
You grab my hand as the plane lands.
You hug me briefly.
You give me a high five.
You sign for me to help you.
You use an iPad to say hello.
You give me a rock that says Love on it.
I sit across from you on a bus in NYC.
You scoot over so I can sit down.
I sit in your office.
I teach you online.
We wish each other good luck before an exam.
I speak to you on the phone.
You sit on the floor next to me in Barnes and Noble, scanning the psychology section.
Your words resonate with me.
I think I’ve seen you before.
Yes, I made you a sandwich once.
We dance Forrô.
I can hear your heart.
It’s just as beautiful as your smile.
I keep walking.
I think I’m alone.
And then I see you again.
I may never learn your name, but please know I’m glad we met.
