expanding destiny

a poem written to Lindsay Rae Goodrich

the day we were introduced
i shook your dainty hand
a dazzling smile enchanting
with heart of gold on sleeve

as if i knew you all my life
our conversation gliding
laughter, spontaneity
have yet to ease relent

to the contrary
joy only seems to swell
beyond a point of sense detection
into mysterious bliss

like inter-winding twine
i am yours
you are mine
