Our Human Connection

Our Human Connection
Is my addiction.

We catch glimpses
Of one another
Echoing each other
Through this cyberspace.

With click, a like and a share
The dots connect in a flash
Knowing me is seeing yourself
Knowing you is seeing myself.

This Human Interaction
A lesson in compassion
Beauty in transcendence.

We live for that validation
From each proclamation
Our mutual adoration
Fuels our inspiration.

You see me
Between the lines
I know you
From all sides, no lies
I am because you are.

We affirm one another
We nurture each other
Sharing one more beautiful light
Before we say good night
Leaving nothing asunder.

May our human connection remain the main attraction of life.

  1. I am because you are…
    splendid line, has me thinking.
    What a wonderfully thought-through piece this one is and so splendidly topical.

  2. I especially like the line, “Beauty in transcendence.”
