Connection

I stand on a corner

Glistening skyscrapers above

Smooth concrete below

 

I stand and wait

For lights to change

Red to green, all the same

 

I know as I stand

A passing stranger’s eyes will meet mine

A sliding glance will turn into a double take

 

I will be captive for a moment

Held by a soul connection

Although we are strangers

 

It is for this reason I write

Waiting for a soul connection

You read my words as I wait

 

It is for you I stand and wait

Just look up for a moment

Just look again and make a connection

That's really touching. You wonder how many people see you everyday; imagine if you made that connection with everyone and took a second to smile or say "hi." This is a really good poem.
