couldn't keep the chills from overtaking me... this poem touched me deeply. it's an amazing thing when souls connect so profoundly that it can't be contained in one lifetime, and you have expressed that so beautifully, that even though it was written for your friend, i feel the need to thank you.

Hoot, This happens more than we realize. Thanks

Terry, It is I who thank you for reading and commenting on mine. You're very kind

Destiny, It's probably the notion of this poem that so many are relating to. The idea that love continues on no matter what, the idea of a spiritual recognition between two people, whether you believe in reincarnation or life after death in heaven. There is a permanence to some relationships, which some couples are aware of. Some people meet late in life and have a short time together but have the promise of a continuation of that love into the future. If you were touched by this poem, then you can call it yours.
Thanks for your comments.

Elizabeth,
          truly you have told us all of the power of love to stretch beyond the boundaries of space and time. . . told us of a love so deep and so true that it could not be contained by something so simple as death.

I have to agree with Destiny when she said, "it's an amazing thing when souls connect so profoundly that it can't be contained in one lifetime," I think that this is the kind of love that we all wish to have in this life, and in the next. . .

Perhaps I have said too much, but as someone who believes in the power of love, I cannot say enough about this work. . .thank you my friend. . .

Sven
    Thank you for your wonderful comments. It is truly rare and wonderful if two people experience this kind of love, no matter the age or circumstances. I will be sure to tell my friend of your remarks. They were much appreciated. Thank you
Liz

Martie, thanks for your comments. This shows how many people contemplate a subject that is never spoken of. And I agree with Sven, that love is a rare gift.
