The Yearning Of A Heart - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

People say that love
is but a simple thing
but to me it’s the yearning of the heart
that needs fulfilment
from the day that I came into this world.

From the arms of a mother
to the arms of a loved one
we are destined to meet
the love of our lives
and are on the lookout
for a companion,

like a predator on the hunt
and we answer to the silent call of destiny,
looking though the windows of our hearts,
prowling to see if we do not find
the right soul-mate
that fit into the criteria of life

and it’s a longing for fulfilment,
for someone to grow old with,
someone who will love you unconditionally

and although they are galaxies apart
soul-mates will find each other
through the loop of time
and there is a dreamer
that will look for you
in circumstances that is simply unexplainable.

When two hands meet and sparks fly
it’s what is written in the book of times
and is what people talk about
as a moment in time,
as a space in destiny,
as a lifecycle to complete
when love does find a way
to end the journey to the heart.
