On that day, when I saw you, I was afraid that I would mess up in front of you. I thought that we may acknowledge each other awkwardly at best. I did not like that. So I took out my phone and pretended to busy myself with matters of consequence. I did not think that you would notice me. But you did.

You called my name and said hi. I tried to be as calm as possible, but deep inside my heart and mind did cartwheels.

Maybe you thought it was something minor, common courtesy. But days after that happened, I still could not forget how such a simple greeting made my day. Someone affirmed my existence, and of all people, it was you. And you matter.

Thank you for intruding into my thoughts, for showing me that I am somebody.
