We were strangers
But strangers no more.
A few intermediate chats,
Leading to a four year lap.
Now no connection at all.
Funny how people come together,
And apart they fall.
From a stranger to a friend,
From a friend to a companion.
From a husband and wife,
Spoke about together we would spend the rest of our life.
In this sacred institution of Marriage.
We’re companions and friends you say.
But do friends really act this way?
Not knowing from day to day,
Are we together or should we not stay.
In life’s journey we meet many different people,
Some strangers become friends,
Some don’t stay for the journey,
 While others remain until the end.
First, we were strangers,
And now we’re strangers again.
We’ve come full circle,
Some say a déjà vu end.
