you’re the first
and the last
roommate I had
in my life


           It took our past lives


That day
through the window
you’d tossed a message
before we met


Later you confessed
you’d known me
in your dream
long before
I entered
your life


Then the door opened

The journey we shared
was too short
at least
in this life


But I know
you’re here
at my shoulder


My voyage
continues to
share the world


Until I meet you
at the door
