The Journey

Oh, I have walked this land before -
Have wandered through some hidden door,
Left footprints on a distant shore
Then traveled 'round the bend;

I have appeared in many forms,
And I've encountered many storms,
Lived and died and been reborn -
My lifetimes to defend;

There is a purpose so divine
That lets our spirits intertwine
And blossom into vintage wine -
Our hearts and souls to blend;

And even though our paths divide,
That soul connection deep inside
Will hold us close though we have died -
I'll know you as my friend

When we shall wander back again,
Neither knowing where or when,
No matter where our souls have been -
The journey has no end.....................

    Exquisite hopeful sentiments of a journey never-ending. I hope you're right Linda! Another first class example of your superior poetic skills. You are a mistress of the Art. Do I remember you saying somewhere that you weren't a poet? I lead exhibits A, B, C and D m' lord, and my case rests. All rise: the defendant is found guilty of poesy in the first and highest degree. Punishment: To keep on writing work of this calibre through endless lifetimes. I hope I'm there to read the results. (Report) Reply

    No end and no beginning either. We are but waves in the vast sea of life, each one making our little splash and returning to the deep blue mystery - over and over. Loved this one. Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
