Fortuned smiled on me back in November 1999,
I met a wonderful man right here in Passions,
A man who has changed my destiny,
A man who's friendship helps set my spirit free.

It's only been eight months,
But in that time alone,
We have shared our lives and histories,
Two similar souls - the kindred zone.

Never before have I been so understood,
And never again will I know such a friendship,
It's much more than best friends,
It is a soul's kinship.

Always a shoulder for support,
Always an encouraging word,
A meeting of the minds,
Some would call absurd.

Intelligent, loyal and loving,
Hell I couldn't ask for more,
So this is my thankyou to him,
For never wanting to shut the door.

Thankyou hon for being there,
A similar soul only a heartbeat away,
And with every foundation stone laid,
You're a little less further away.

My kindred, there will always be a place for you in this heart........................


 I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.

Isis - the world isn't so heavy when there's two sets of shoulders to carry it - I'm so happy for you that you've found the other half of your soul.  This is a lovely poem.

I must admit to being a sceptic when it comes to this sort of thing, but more power to you.  You put it all so well.  Great tribute!

A wonderful tribute to what is obviously a wonderful friendship. May your friendship continue to blossom.  

 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown
