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
