If it hadn't been for world travel, I'd never have met you.
We come from distant places-- places I've never been,
Just hoped to see. And now we're here together.
Staving off our loneliness as we best see fit.
We swim, we run, we walk and skip.
We take tea and cakes together, munching companionably.
I see you sew, and marvel. I pricked myself with the needle
The other day. But I knit on, and you sew on and we make
Sweet harmonies together.
It was the bully that brought us together, perhaps.
Fuzz faced and beady eyed and hungry.
We screamed; together. You're embarrassed now and so am I.
We've all crossed continents to get here (I wish you'd stay)
They all leave in the end, and I wonder if someday, so will I.
For now, its nice to know you care.
