Side By Side As One - Poem by Linda Ori

Two souls joined now hand in hand
That once were but a grain of sand
In the vast expanse of time;
How wondrous that your soul found mine
In this whole span of space and time,
Like a beacon you called out to me
And I to you;
Through all time, my love, my friend
You'll stand beside me to the end
And then beyond -
When we are but a grain of sand
In the vast expanse of time,
Yet side by side still joined as one
To sparkle in the morning sun;
How well your hand fits into mine
As though designed for me alone,
And now our hearts are intertwined
As morning glorys on the vine
We'll wind our way up to the sun
Side by side as one;
Though rain may fall and dark descend,
And wind may cause our hearts to bend,
I have no fear for you will be
Forever near, forever dear -
The keeper of my soul.
