Gypsy. - Poem by Lisa Cresswell Wilkinson

I was not searching for answers
Curiosity brought me to you.
But I kept an open mind and my own point of view
Predicaments you told me
I did not understand
As I crossed your palm with silver
And you kindly took my hand

'Within six weeks' you said to me
'This man would come along'
I thought this was not possible
I thought that you were wrong

You said we'd already met before'
But the timing was not right
It was not meant to be back then
I had to find my sight

There was something else in my life right then
'But within six weeks' you said
'Id jump at the chance to be with this man
And we'd be together again

He was the one for me, you said
As you took my other hand
You read my life just like a book
And I saw this Promised Land.

You made me think and dream and hope
That you were true and I could cope

As time went by this all came true
Each spoken word that came from you

It took me aback
It all made sense
I fell for this man
It was so intense

'A tap on the shoulder' is how it would start
You were so right gypsy
He has stolen my heart!

    Lisa, I really like this poem. Some Gypsies have a real insight into peoples lives. I remember one came to my mother's door when I lived there years before I met my wife. At the time I never wanted to learn to drive. She said I would be driving before the year was out. I nodded gracefully and when she had left I laughed about it with my mother. Within months I was a passenger in a car involved in a head on crash. I walked away uninjured. After the crash I learn to drive and within the year I had my licence. Coincidence or something more? I've never been sure. This is another of your great writes. Top Marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.

    A poem well done Lisa, you describe the situation well. I tend to shy away from these people, I believe they have some insigtht, I'm just a little concerned about the line between good and evil so I tend to stay away from them. It looks like everything happened in a positive way for you though. Congratulations on your new relationship, I hope you both will be happy for many years to come and enjoy wonderful times together.---Melvina--- (Report) Reply

    Lisa, I went to her once, too. It scared the crap out of me how accurate she was. I've never been back. I'll take one day at a time. But....I loved this poem! Great and interesting subject. Barb (Report) Reply
