Companionship of circumstance
and sustenance for the soul,
in my mind a loving memory,
a kindness, gratefully accepted.

A stranger’s blatant blessing,
freely given and undisguised,
but blinded by my need and hurt,
insufficiently understood.

Amazement when, years later,
profound gratitude was expressed!
Inexplicable unawareness, then,
that I might be needed also.

Serendipity for others
and osmosis by default:
compound happenstance or
an irony of wonders?
