Like a clap of thunder,
your voice struck from the
unknown, yet it was soothing,
and unexpected.  There was
a familiarity in your face,
and my suspicions were correct.
Your personality was charming,
and your interest in deadly
diseases intriguing.  For the
worse, our banter was cut
short, and you disappeared into
the unknown of that you
appeared.  You cam and went
like a bolt of lightening, and
with the equal amount of
grace and beauty.
