It was as she passed me by
that she touched me
not with her body
but I felt her touch me
and I wondered
if she felt me too

Would she turn back and notice me
had she sensed my presence
as I sensed hers
If I approached and said hello
would she wonder who I was
or would she be relieved to know
our senses were mutual

I watched her walk away for a moment
only for a moment
reserved and discrete
and as I resolved myself
returning my eyes aside and away
she turned back
and caught my glance
and noticed me
