I notice you in my rear view mirror

as we wait for the lights to turn green

you wear a look of anxiety,

or tiredness,

or frustration

its hard to tell in a mirror

for those moments as our lives intersect

I wonder about your story

was it a tough day at the office?

heading home to a fractured relationship?

maybe worried about sick children?

or the everyday challenge of paying the bills

our lives meet this day

and though you perhaps are not aware of it

for a moment I think of you

worry with you

wonder about you

then the light turns

and our stories diverge
