By Chance
Have you ever met a friend
by chance
by pure coincidence?
You did

I did too
Met a friend today
by chance
by pure coincidence

She doesn't live here
she lives far away
but here she was

I don't go outside
always cooped up in my room
but here I was

Was walking aimlessly
but one glance of her
and all of it made sense
why I was outside
there was no purpose
but here it was

Is it too much to say
or is it not
but universe
have a hand in everything

From the cofee you drink
to your late night walks
From the ice cream parlour you skipped
to the rides along the way

Maybe everything do happen for a reason
Maaybe they don't
but for now I'll satisfy myself
that the universe do care
