Until We Meet Again - Poem by Paul Hartal

The crawling moments of yearnings
Are permeated by rousing desires
Immersed in celestial thirst
And earthly passions
But the soul protests fervidly
What the flesh cannot afford.

It was just yesterday
That I held you in my arms
But you are now
Thousands of miles away
In a remote metropolis
Where a great river
Kisses the northern sky
And I long
For your tender love Soul Mate
In a southern harbour
On the shores of the mighty ocean.

Thus and so life unfolds
As a story of hello and goodbye
Welcome and so long
A time together and a time to fly.
Yet the soul protests fervidly
What the flesh cannot afford.

The crawling moments of yearnings
Are permeated by rousing desires
Now time and space
Drive unyielding wedges
Building disjointing walls of farewell
But on the horizon flowers blossom
Greeting us with blessing
Until we meet again.
