She Walked with Me Today

She walked with me today
though I never saw her
it felt, as if
she shared my pathways
regardless of where I went,
I turned quickly
to catch her smile
in my hand, letting it look
out through the cracks
listening to me laugh
and tell my funny stories,
but when I turned towards her
she was gone, as if
only being a memory of
when we walked my pathways
