I woke up late one morning
and went for a run.
Ran into a man with too much to say,
But there is no such thing
So I listened all the way
As he joined me.
We ran to the store
Where we bought coffee.
He told me all about his daughter and her graceful ways;
“Oh, she’s beautiful, ya wouldn’t know,”
We exchanged words for hours.
It only felt like a moment, until I realized it.
