He said excuse me as I was walking by.
Shoulder to shoulder and our bodies shifted toward each other.
There’s something amazing about a smile that lingers and fades into intensity.
His was a gaze filled with passionate promise.
I forgot everything.
Everything that should have mattered melted at his smile.
I remembered the hint of a feeling that stirs from a lifetime ago because I was looking from past to future, held only by a smile in our moment.
I remembered everything and that moment held the promise of a million tomorrows.
Then I looked away briefly.
And the moment was gone.
