By accident, I found a companion.
I only wanted to find some peace.
My goal was to plod alone into the future.
I could avoid all of life’s distractions.
I thought solitude could let me collect my thoughts.
My path was set, and I knew the way.
Normally, I am protected by sturdy fences.
They stand tall to block out the world.
But I opened a gate and found her waiting.
She became my new friend in life.
My days before floated away to be lost.
Now I hold their message close and she smiles.
Her pleasant company brings true peace.
We live in a world full of hope and beauty.
Now she has taught me how to dance.
I invite you to join us.
