One of the biggest aspects of our lives is the social aspect. Some of us manage just fine being independent, and don’t mind being alone for long periods of time. I think that is more of an exception. Most people crave some social interaction and some people cannot stand to be alone at all. I think that we can endure solitude much better if we have an active imagination, and can learn to enjoy mindfulness and thinking to ourselves. This is a poem that looks at companionship and how soul mates may always be close. When we meet someone, there is a reason for it – however powerful or not that may be. To me this is a concept about spirit: soul mates connecting in time – two personalities at least temporarily brought together as one.
Healthy day with my most terrific friend,
Scenic view from the modest terrace ledge,
Rambling on about great stories of mine,
Making dinner at the best time to dine,
Hedge is taller – I can’t see my neighbour,
It’s just the season, I’m sure we’ll share more,
Chance meeting one day is a telling sign,
So, how are you doing? Thank-you: just fine!
Watch as the moment travels with the sun,
Through all night and through all of the weather,
What difference does it make, in the short run?
Whether we are alone – or together?
It’s clear to me that companionship rules,
But it’s hard to find peace with each other,
At times, being our own best friend is cool,
More nice to hear the voice of a lover,
The streets, a town, the city speaks of friends,
So close that the connection never ends,
The greatest of plans must start in one place,
On phone, in text, or expressed face to face,
Closest partners, discuss how they have met,
Rivers of stories, we’ll never forget,
Each one of us can share this moment – right?
Hearing ourselves: all day and then all night,
How could it ever stop – this strong feeling?
You’re close to me, you’re the source of healing,
Just in the meantime, our closest love waits,
Everyone should know – we all have soul mates.
