I see you standing over there. Can you see me over here? Will I have to compete to get your attention, or can I just sit over here and wait for you?
Do I look like the others? Close, but not really. Do I act like the others? Sometimes, but I am just being me.
Go ahead and mingle. It’s okay, I know my time is next. When you’re done, I will be ready for you.
In the meantime, I like watching you. You seem really nice. While I’m thinking “You’re the one!”, you finally look up and smile at me.
I get up and walk over to you. You do the same. We look at each other and smile again. I know this is it. I speak and you laugh. This is it, it is finally my chance! You turn and walk away, but stop and look back. You call out to me and I run to you happily.
I know I will miss my home, but I’m so excited to be leaving.
As I look out the window and say goodbye to the past, I look up at you and make this pledge for our future:
