Somehow - Poem by Lora Colon

Somehow, you wandered into my world,
How did you find your way?
The path is narrow and overgrown,
No welcome sign on display

My door is always closed and locked,
I don't encourage company;
Yet somehow you wandered into my world,
And you dared to sail this sea

I don't know what to make of this,
My life has been changed around;
Somehow, you wandered into my world
And you've turned it upside down

I stood aside and watched you while
You tore the veil apart,
Trying to remove the ponderous stones
That lay upon my heart

I felt the cadence of your words,
Entrancing me, kindling a flame;
I found myself trying to grasp the hope
That I never dared to claim

I listen to your treasured thoughts,
You're an echo of my mind;
Somehow, you wandered into my world.....
And you've made it so divine!

    a unique testament of how souls may transcend time and space to be united beyond the borders of blood, family and relations.
    this poem exceeds in certain ways your own benchmark. (Report) Reply
