I notice you in my rear view mirror
as we wait for the lights to turn green
you wear a look of anxiety,
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
