dedicated to a wonderful man possessed of such an incredibly gentle spirit. I know you, and you know who you are. Did you think I would forget? Have I ever in 31 years? Never.
The trip began long before time
a journey of your soul and mine.
But our bodies and earthy minds,
yesterday, were unaware,
while fraught with strife and despair.
Our turn, a time when our souls
were lost to each other's care.
But the time, though oft seemed not,
was for the earthy mind to grow;
that mind out of touch with the spirit
as we moved to and fro.
Sudden it was not,
though it may have seemed so,
when finally our souls, freed of darkness,
once again caressed a knowing touch
of such indescribably softness.
And, so now, a new journey begins;
a journey shrouded in God's gentle
veil of mystery.
Memories now of no consequence
to be left in mind's history:
to serve as lessons well learned,
rewards hard earned.
So join my spirit now
for the journey of a lifetime,
Your soul and mine.
Come walk with me, as only our
souls can, hand in hand.
Dance with me, our souls merged,
to the angels' sweet band.
Soar with my soul
among the stars
As we travel wide and far.
There we will learn, unconditional
friends and lovers,
Safe in the spirit… of God's turn.
