Across the Ages

eternal love

You and I were different once,

where did you end and I begin?

From the first touch I knew

we’d been bound throughout centuries.

Our lips together

made us whole again.

Each time we meet

my soul remembers our eternal love.

And each time I lose you

my spirit weeps in your absence.

For with each re-birth

our choices lead us astray.

And thus, I roam the earth

in wait for the next lifetime,

and pray I’ll recognize you sooner…

    Oh I just have too – way too beautifully important to not see, and feel…

  4. Loved reading this. Great work!

    There are so many competing voices about love and eternity in my head, I’m not sure which ones to listen to anymore. Maybe the one that speaks to me when the time is right.

      I believe there are people whom we are destined to love, or perhaps have always loved…

      Then, there are people whom we encounter that prove difficult and/or devastating. These are the ones that lead us toward our spiritual growth process.

      Thank you, Beth, for the encouragement. I am trying to coax out my creative side that’s been stifled for so long…
