Because You Crossed My Path

My life has been blessed
because you crossed my path.
I cherish those seconds,
though you might not even remember.

There is something so divine
about encountering another sacred soul.
At first, we may not realize
just how special this person is…

In fact, in some cases,
we may find them contemptible.
Yet there is a deeper plan,
a deeper lesson to be learned.

Still, in other cases,
this life force perplexes us
for other unknown reasons,
and we contemplate the encounter.

Some stay, and we absorb them
into our own psyche, making them part of our whole.
Some move on at times that seem most inconvenient.
And we are left to mourn what we have lost.

And, sometimes, it is us who does the leaving,
moving through life, searching for our own truth.
We, each of us, are on our own quest…
A splendid journey into our unknown.

There are bound to be times we come across
someone who will not finish our journey with us.
Some will only travel a short distance, and
others will be those who are with us to the end.

I cherish all of the blessed ones.
And while some may linger,
just for a while, it matters not,
Because I learned something from each one…
