New beginnings as we spread our
wings at that small University
across state lines.
With wonder in our eyes, we met
by the coincidence of picking our
seats in the same class.
Hanging out, having fun
little kisses and lots of laughter
as we found a friendship
that was the beginning of our relationship.
The beginning of serendipity.
College ends, each of us follows
our path of choice, collecting life experiences.
Excitement, adventures, growing pains, heartbreak.
Two people synchronistically making
memories separated by a continent
but coming closer together.
A chance message on social media.
A coffee date that leads to
Both mirrors for each other, finding comfort
finding understanding, finding
One year later, going back to the classroom
in the small University where it all began.
The question asked, the answer Yes…
New beginnings. A future filled
with love, respect, friendship and adventure.
This serendipitous new family of two
that will grow and change
forever bonded, forever in love.
