The moment of belonging

When do strangers become friends?
When does a name go from being
Just another one on a clipboard
To one committed to memory for life?
When does a visitor
Choose to become a regular?
When does a nation
Go from a place you visit
To a base you leave from?
When does a hand you once stiffly shook
Become the hand you
Never want to let go?
When do the humans you encounter
Along your path on this earth
Become the people
You can’t live without?
When do you come to realize
That despite your best efforts
At playing it cool
And keeping your distance
That someone has broken through your walls
And that you finally belong?
