Lost & Found.
I lost my beloved husband of 42 years in 2009. I gradually and tentatively spread my wings and found my way back to my spirit and to the woman I am today. These were the questions I had in mind when I wrote this poem to the man who entered my life over ten months ago. I read it three weeks into the relationship. If it had scared him away - I would have flown off in another direction - but instead it touched his heart and so I let him enter mine.

Life is not over when there is a loss, for me it was the beginning of a wonderous new chapter. It is truly about lost and found.

Can We ~ Will We?

You have entered my life in the most unexpected way and at the most unforeseen time.

Dare I believe that, as we open our hearts and souls, we can be together and yet separate at the same time?

Will we mirror back to each other with tenderness and acceptance? 

Can I give myself to you without losing “Me?”

Will we treat one another’s spirit gently, offering comfort and understanding without judgment?


Can we be trusting and quiet with each other without fear, without boundaries?

Will your hold be filled with the strength and tenderness that I so desire?

When we lean back into each other’s arms, can we just “Be”?

If I let you into my world, and want you to stay, will you understand my desire to take wing, to fly?

And, when I return, will you cup my heart in open hands and be my nesting place?

Can we nurture each other, while listening to the rhythm of one another’s soul music?

 Can we play like butterflies flitting over a flower-filled meadow, tasting each other’s nectar?

Or jump into a waterfall together, experience delight and bask in each other’s spirit?

Will our relationship be peaceful, filled with optimism and the colors of a rainbow?

 On this journey called “Life,” were we supposed to meet and share our hearts? Can I rest safely in your arms as we breathe together and apart?

Has our Soul Story just begun?  

                Will you make my heart sing?

What a beautiful thing to share, Laurel.

I hope you continue to be as happy as your new love takes you!

Wonderful poem Laurel. The reader can tell it came from your heart as all good romantic poetry should. I'm sorry for the loss of your husband but glad you've found another to share life with. It's been eight years for me and I still haven't found anyone who could replace my husband, I don't want to attempt the impossible.

A beautiful poem of holding onto one's Self while embracing the anticipation of uniting with another.
