Looking across the room, I see the one who stands out from all the others.

Such grace upholds them.

Livelihood fills them.

Happiness glows in their eyes.

Sweet laughter is the only sound I hear.

Moving closer, I hear the sound of their voice, so strong, so pure, and I see their face so beautiful, shining brightly.

I watch carefully as they stand and walk my way, closer by the second.

They are only a few feet away now.

My hands are shaking with nervousness, my feet glued to the floor.

They walk closer, and then right by me.

The chance for a meeting gone, without even a simple hello.
