My Youthful World
-----------------------                            
When I was one and ten,              
young like you were way back then.    
a circle had begun,                  
that binds two futures into one.      
Time has come, the years have gone    
eight and twenty, since              
we lost that bond.                    
you were just my poor town girl      
Dolores of my youthful world          
But circles weave, and fate it seems
may tie the ends, for such as me      
and maybe bonds, lost so long        
return to me, a future girl          
Dolores from My Youthful World.

Parker, yes fate is a sweetened thought, especially for us soft cynics, but what one must do to turn the "fates" around!  

Love this poem you've shared!

Meadowmuse, thank you, I would like to hope that we are somewhat in control of our own fates.
