This one's a doozy, let me tell you. I can't remember the title, the author, or even a single line of this poem...all I remember is that it's about how some people come into our lives and then leave without affecting us at all, and others come into our lives and we're never the same.
Sound familiar to anybody?
Sorry for being of so little help...and thanks for any help you can give. ^_^
This probably is not the one you are looking for, but I thought I'd share it with you anyway:
Moment in Time
by Cynthia Kepp
for a Moment in Time.
You passed through my life that day and left your mark.
You may never pass my way again,
Or you may stay for a lifetime.
No matter what,
I want to say thank you for the impression you made
that will stay with me for eternity.
I enjoyed the walk,
I enjoyed the talk.
I am blessed for that moment in time.
The first time I saw you I knew you would affect my life,
though your role I did not know.
I asked myself, "Why is he alone?
Why does he sit so quiet, all alone?
Is he sad?
Is he glad to be alone?
Is he alone?
Is he lonely? "
There is so much I want to know.
I asked myself, "Why him?
When so many people pass through my life each day,
why him? "
What attracts me to you?
What makes me want to know more?
I want to know.
Even if my questions are never answered,
There is one thing I want you to know.
I have been blessed by the effect you had on me in that
Moment in Time.
Thank you! ^^ You're right, it's not the one I'm looking for, but it's a really nice poem and I might do something with it later.
Thanks for sharing! ^^
Maybe this is the one you're looking for (Sorry I don't know the author) If this is not it I have another one that is similar, called "A Reason, A Season, A Lifetime".
A REASON FOR EVERYTHING
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there...to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be, but when you lock eyes with them, you know that every moment they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles, you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless -- the people you meet affect your life.
The successes and downfalls that you experience can create whom you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whomever you open your heart.
If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before and actually listen.
Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

I believe the name is Kaizer's Dream. I believe the first line is " The Kaizer had a dream one night, while sitting in Berlin.." I'm looking for the entire poem. Thanks for any help!
Maybe this one? Hit Stop to kill the music:
That's it!!! ^_^ Thank you so much!!!
who is the author?
I have the author as good old Anon - he's very prolific!
Marian2 wrote: "good old Anon - he's very prolific!"
I used to be impressed by his output, too, until I saw his birth and death dates in a list of classic poets:
"Anon - 1100 to 1960 [a.d.]"
If I had that much time, I bet I could write just as much!
How about Emily Dickinson's
The Soul selects her own Society-
Then-shuts the Door-
On her divine majority-
Present no more-
Unmoved-she notes the Chariots-pausing-
At her low Gate-
Unmoved-an Emperor is kneeling
Upon her Mat-
I've known her-from an ample nation
Then-close the valves of her attention-
