Did we meet in heaven?
Did we fall in love as angels?
Living in a world of our own creation
Walking by sunlight
                   Loving by starlight. . .

Such was our existance of love
Every day together better than the last
Until the time your soul was called back
Returning to earth
                  Renewing a life. . .

Now heaven may be paradise
But without you it was a hell
Eternity can be a very lonely place
Without a love
              Without a reason. . .

So, I struck a deal with them
"Send me back there too," I pleaded
"I know that I can find her again
Knowing her heart
                 Knowing her soul. . . "

They gave me some time, 30 years
Half a life to find my destiny, my fate
"Once you find her, you'll be together forever"
An eternity together
                    Forever in love. . .

I entered the world once again
A different name, a different life, once more
Wailing into the world, on a quest for eternal love
Life beginning again
                    Love seeking again. . .

Our lives began here seperately
You led a life of ease, mine not so easy
We both knew there was more, but where and when?
The answered question
                     The question answered. . .

Your life seemed to have purpose
You always knew what you wanted
You always seemed to find others to have in your life
To comfort you
              To hold you. . .

My life was just aimless wandering
Moving from town to town never staying
Never really knowing what I was looking for in life
Until one day
             One fateful day. . .

They told me I only had 2 years left
That my life hadn't been spent looking for you
But rather then take me back, they intervened
My prayers answered
                   My direction shown. . .

The instrument spoke to me
Showing me direction and purpose
It was right then I knew what I had to do
A song written
              Just for you. . .

A song for you my unknown muse
Given to me by the angels above
A song that made me famous but still
You weren't there
                 I had failed. . .

My 30th birthday, my time now over
Unknown to me, but somehow I knew
My life now empty, perhaps I'll take a walk
One last walk
             To find eternity. . .

You walk the other way
But then you turn around
You don't know why, you just do
Seeking to find
               Finding your heart. . .

I feel you there behind me
I turn around one last time
I see your face before me
Your beautiful face
                   As I remembered. . .

That's when they called me back. . .

They took me back to say
"Happy Birthday!  But you're not staying
Congratulations. . . you found her. . .
Together you'll be
                  For all eternity. . . "

A match truly. . .
                  . . . Made In Heaven. . .

A beautiful poem! I've heard that we were complete souls once, that the souls were torn in two and scattered throughout the universe..always seeking their 'soulmate'..

Oh Sweet Sven,
*Smiling and wearing a tear on my cheek!*
THIS is truly amazing. You brought a tear to my eye
once again.
One of my fav's of yours for sure.

Wow Sven!  This is so beautiful and amazing.  You have such a way with words, and you write about a beautiful subject with eloquence and perfection.  This is definately one of my favourites!  You have such a talent when it comes to love.  I still believe that God creates soulmates for everyone, thanks for reminding us all of that hope.

Take care,
Melissa Honeybee

This is amazing Sven!  I am a firm believer in the rebirth of a soul and how soulmates are always meant to be together in any life.
Beautiful writing.

Thank you. . .

deVine. . . yes, I have heard that too, would that we could all find that "soulmate" right away. . . life would be different. . . but then, we'd have to pay attention. . .

Irie. . . thank you. . . I'm so glad that you liked it. . .

Melissa. . . *blushing* thank you so much!  Yes, I believe it too. . . and I'm glad that I reminded you. . .

Marina. . . I thought the reason that you posted twice was that you liked twice as much!!     Thank you my friend. . .

Kit. . . thank you, now if we could get more people to believe it!!  Glad that you liked. . .

For those of you who don't know, Made In Heaven is a wonderfully romantic movie with Kelly McGillis and Timothy Hutton. . . I would advise renting this movie this weekend and enjoying it. . .

Sven~
If the movie is half as good as your poem ... it would be a delight.
How moving ...
