A Soul Like Mine


If I were to find a soul like mine,
Someone who thinks as I do,
Someone whose every step rhymes with mine.....
That's all I'd ask - my wants are few

How easy it would be to adore him,
I'd always know what to say;
All his thoughts would be like my own,
We'd be the same in every way

He'd hate injustice, hypocrisy as well,
The plight of the poor makes him cry;
Bigotry and prejudice find no place in his heart,
He shuns it all..... the same as I

O, to find a soul like mine,
Love would be plentiful and strong;
The strength of our love would carry us
When the day fails and the night is all wrong

We'd know how to comfort each other,
He'd love me unconditionally;
And when I see his poverty revealed,
I would bring him my charity

Where will I look for a soul like mine,
What foreign ground must I traverse;
Where should I look - does he even exist?
Perhaps....... in a parallel universe!

    I am so pleased to read this poem of yours! It is really very beautiful.
    'A Soul Like Mine' is not always easy to find. We may find one in the virtual world, not sure.
    Loved very much the mystic tone of the last stanza.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
