You came into my life like a meteor

Then disappeared back to New York

/

In September, we had tea and talked about community

There was so much left to explore

/

You invited me to commute

To keep the conversation flowing

/

Walk through Central Park

Pointed out this one cute PUPPAY!!!

We kept on going

/

On a packed train

Talking as if no one else was around

/

We shared our radical thoughts

Our motivations on the same wavelength

/

Mental Health

Why else

/

People are lonely

They want a purpose to live

/

We thought community could give

If only you had lived

/

When we got to NASDAQ

You showed me around

/

We spoke a little more

Before returning back to the ground

/

I left and followed up

Hours and hours and hours of conversation left to be had

/

I guess all I can do now is be glad

You made time for me

Though your time here was scarce

/

Gave me your 100% presence

No distraction

It was clear

/

So much thought had collected into your words

Deep-rooted in your own experience

A thesis left to be heard

/

You flew into and out of my life

Like a meteor burning

Or maybe a shooting star

/

And now all I’m left with are

All too brief chats on Facebook and Slack

A memory of an intense conversation

And your Medium posts
