I pass you by
going wherever
I must go
in hurry
but I know not why
my eyes are open
but they see not
where and what
and who

you pass me by
going somewhere
that I don’t know

and without knowing
why I stop
and turn around
I look
and wait

until the anonymity
in smiles exchanged
in recognition
of impersonal reality
and leaving that behind

I do not know
your name,
your face remains
in memory
of life
that blossoms
like in spring

Goodbye stranger,
happiness and peace
and love upon your path
until we meet again

exchanging smiles
that life is beautiful
when anonymity dissolves
and people
face to face
exchange a smile
