Happy to See You

We met only that once.
We shared a laugh and a short chat.
But something clicked, and we both knew,
“Wow. You are human, too.”

It’s a small place, thus inevitable, it could be.
But of 7.1 billion on this planet currently;
of 14 billion years since the cosmos came to be,
what chanced this encounter between you and me?

Most of us go preoccupied
between stresses, grievances, and concerns.
But then we meet again… out of the blue…
and I can’t help but feel so happy to see you.
