Oh, how did I ever find thee?

Was it at the whim of Fate?
Or the planned hand of Destiny?
A chance throw upon a clean slate?
Oh, how did I ever find thee?

Like so many grains of sand
Tossed upon the shore from a torrent sea
Powerless over where we land
Oh, how did I ever find thee?

Beings caught in the current of Time
Drifting in past, present and future eddies
Within bottomless soundings of the hour's chime
Oh, how did I ever find thee?

Were I to take the world's vastness at a run
Reveling in all the eye could see
Treasures would still forever lie beyond the horizon
Oh, how did I ever find thee?

The answer may be a mystery for the sages
But the truth is clear for me
Query the question of the ages
And I shall claim "Love is how we came to be"

Andrew...

excellent offering- I love the fact that your repition actually ads to the depth of the poem instead of distracting from it- it flows very nicely. Almost reminds me of Byron or Browning.

Nicely done, Andrew. When you look at all the steps that had to fall into place just perfectly, its a wonder any of us found anyone. I'm glad you found us. Welcome

To Poet deVine, Nan, Christina, and Ballader:
Thanks for the meet and greet, as well as your kind words concerning my poetry.
What you see are my first postings ever in all of internet land. That you took the time
to read and respond given all the postings found here is gracious in deed. My heartfelt thanks.

Andrew
