Life is a puzzle from birth. We search most of our lives without success meeting the superficial in most cases, This is all about winning and believing.


When you look at her and wonder
There are parts you can not see
Like the half of her that's missing
For the whole that's not to be
You see a woman shining
Feet planted in the ground
What you can't see is the sorrow
Or just where it once was found
Her appearance is astounding
For never would you guess
That this soul grieves no longer
And her insides aren't a mess
Nor a jumble...for this horseman
Came and took her soul
Left a gypsy spirit breathless
Took a part and left a whole
For his gift to her...his answer
His love was here and gone
Now the whole of her is seeking
The heart he took and won.
Let him go with freedoms spirit
For he left her with a glow
Took a heart that wasn't beating
Left a seed with which to sow
Many memories in the making
And a promise to return
To the part of her that's missing
For the soul still here that yearns
Today is worth the waiting
The future is a guess
As the soul of one so empty
Is a part of him... at best.
And the love of two good spirits
Beat forever a new whole
And the part that wasn't total
Is a story to be told.

It is not the half of this that entrances me, but the full of it.

I love the hope in this write. He "took a part and left a whole", yes loving only increases our capacity to love as we go in search of or hope for the one who can share the whole of our hearts. Wonderful write!

A lot of ambiguity within the framework of this poem, which I assume to be on purpose. I loved it. I loved it because you uncovered a deep secret of our makeup, mainly that the people we meet have a direct impact upon who we become. Good.

This is soul stirring but the love that you supply this sweet little one more then compensates Susan believe me I know. Hold tight to that love and keep bitterness at bay, the love is what you want her to always remember.
