If you and I had never met
There would be nothing to forget,
But surely there would be a gap;
A space upon my lifetime's map.
Those little gems that you impart -
Small bits of knowledge. And my heart
Would miss you in some tiny way,
Without your presence in my day.
This world is so immense and wide,
I treasure knowing you, with pride.
If I had not encountered you
I'd miss a lot, and that is true.
I would not have your laugh, your grin,
Your kind eyes, or your stubbly chin
Imprinted on my memory.
I'm so glad you are friends with me.
