i got thinking
how sometimes
the right people
don’t get together

least that’s what
my ma always sez
how lives r like books
only more real, like #s
appearing on a call display
out of the blue, yours did
after i heard u & Mia split
i wuz sure i saw your #

& i remembered us
laughing at life, everything
in love,  i thought until u said
she wuz the one
& i wondered who i’d been
just a friend, confused

i never knew why u said
“i’ll find u someday”
as if u knew u might need to

as if u knew u were
stuck taking a wrong fork
on life’s twisting road
& couldn’t help yourself

but hey, if u want to talk
you know, i’m still here
