Cairo: and a tale of skimming the surface

Do you ever wonder about the people you never really meet?
Just a nod in the elevator
a smile in the street
a thank you on the phone.

Just a chance hi and goodbye.
And that's all, really.  Yes, that's all, forever.

All the mised encounters
All the missed connections.
All the missed somethings with meaning.

The memories you never had and the jokes you never shared, because you never had a chance to, well, begin.

And it's sad, really.  It's sad to think
that we might always be strangers, as if that was, as if that could ever be...... enough.
