Life Times - Poem by Jim French

I spent a lifetime one night,
Talking to you,
Never met,
But you know me,

You know me more.
Than people I have talked years to,
You know me from an eternity of my lives,
A past shared, but not remembered.

I know you,
From the memories,
Of before I was this me,
Of before you were this you.

    This is hauntingly beautiful Jim. The connection is amazing when we know we know a special person from a past life. Your words are meaningful and perfectly placed. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    Jim, I agree with Irene. I've read it ten times and not sure I've got it. I go in different directions of reincarnation and dimentia and messages to poet friends on PH. Thanks for the stimulation. Jim (Report) Reply
