Smiling faces embraced my heart;
With simple questions deepening
The moment to unexpected places –
Trust beyond hope touched us.

The welcoming friendship spoke of
A togetherness transcending us:
With boundaries of time and faces
Melting into the smallest meeting
A newness entered our delayed start.

With our places and faces renewed
A joy and wonder found a new home
For the visitor who rushes around:
Smiling faces embracing my heart.
