Act Of God - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

I'm pretty sure, my girl
that your unconscious
and my unconscious
do want to get together.
And you and I, the hosts,
we cannot help
this mad desire,
as it is all
a matter of
and destiny,
and cosmic influence,
and, in the end
an act of God.

I ask you then
why you or I
when faced
with higher powers
ever would
stand in the way.
So, what,
my girl,
what do you think?

    I guess we are supposed to add a poem so here goes.

    You write really well
    from what I read I can tell
    Your friend the preacher
    will always pray
    for you to write another day
    Word that say more than we read
    lines with meanings
    yes indeed
    a poem written by you my friend
    will einstein figure out
    how they end
