I wish
that we had met
under different circumstances.

Of course it is
the circumstances we face
that shape us, mold us, make us who we are.

Under different circumstances
we would be different people,
and maybe the different you
would not want to know the different me;
maybe the different me
would not want to know the different you.

Or maybe we would.

Since we will never know,
perhaps we would do better
to enjoy what is
than to wish for what we do not know
and will never be.
