What if…

a poem by Nav Chandi

A moment in time when two eyes meet;
When two souls briefly connect;
When there is a recognition of something greater happening;
Yet, sometimes it is easier to dismiss this recognition…
but what if we did not dismiss it?
What if we had stopped time to acknowledge it?
What if we were to say “Hello!” and see where our words lead us?
What if the smile we received is a comfort that we may never experience again?
And yet, it could be dismissed so easily.
We would never know what could have been…
had we acknowledged the connection…
had we been brave enough to stop time for that moment.
Sometimes, life is just a series of moments.
What if we had acknowledged this moment?
What if…
