Aching Hearts - Poem by Ray Lucero

Half a lifetime has now passed
since romance touched our hearts...

We were young lovers filled
with wonder and endless possibilities

The sun had never set on our love
until one fateful summer day

How could we know fate would fling our souls
so cruelly to opposite ends of the universe?

How could we understand
that destiny knew full well what
our minds did not want to know?

How deeply we plunged into
the depths of our souls, knowing
that young love would be sacrificed,
As fate commanded, we cleanse
polluted family bloodlines

Why did we live in diverse
and often unfriendly places?
Creating relationships
not chosen by loving hearts
rather from a place
of knowing, deep within
purposeful souls

We now look back at
the wisdom of our choices
yet are powerless to soothe
“Aching Hearts”

Although we’ve accepted
a path chosen by destiny
it's not without sorrow and pain

Alas, Hearts still yearn
for love from yesteryear,

In this lifetime we must trust
that God Knows that
we have chosen service to Him
and our blossoming souls,
above carnal love

When we unite again it shall be
in a place of truth and beauty
A new Eden where we shall love eternal
