A smile from a passer-by on the street,
leading to brief connection between strangers,
warmth spreads through your chest
you are transfixed by another’s life.
The paths they walk along,
the winding roads beneath their footsteps.
It is a fleeting glance,
a reminder to people that we come from a community,
people who care, those that consider,
a community that can see each person
we walk alongside and pass on a busy road.
It is the smallest way two souls glimpse one another.
It is a simple smile
