Journey - Poem by Moriah Lederman

Come sail with me. It's a journey of discovery.
Not for the weak hearted, but for the strong
searching spirit that longs for knowledge.
Let us accompany each other on this trip of enlightenment.
While we find ourselves let us also
embrace the uniqueness of the other.
Let me also learn from you; my mirror, my alter ego.
We are opposites yet so very similar.
I look at you and see infinite possibility.
I take a part of you and weave the intricate
patterns of your personality with mine.
Maybe you do the same.
All I know is that you inspire me.
Like precious metal to the flame,
I am molded and changed by you.
We are pieces of the same puzzle.
We form a partnership you and I.
How grateful I am that you are my companion.
My traveling partner through this journey called life.

    I have made my own journey and found yours to be an interesting one. Writing poetry is wonderful. You can do it while and inbetween everything else you might be busy with. With your hands busy with children you should be able to see lots of inspiring ideas. I hope you continue to write your poetic journal to capture the moments that are worth remembering.

    This is a beautiful pledge of lifelong commitment, something that one would like to say during weddings. Another 10 for you. (Report) Reply

    I like this one so much better than 'Don't Touch.' The images are clear and you have not been repetitive as in the other.
