Magaly Sanchez ,cuba
(translated by Margaret Randall)
It happens sometimes; a pair of eyes a profile
someone we donâ€™t know and see only once
or every afternoon.
Someone we met, it was just like that:
a hand on yours
some hasty words.
But someone who became a part of you
and now thereâ€™s no seeing that face without paling
without trembling hands
and itâ€™s almost love.
