Poem - Signs Along The Way

What I Need

Signs along the Way.


A special lady and I wrote this some time ago. Hope you enjoy!


Signs along the Way.

You came to me as a gentle breeze

With a feeling, familiar and warm.

It was as if, our souls were joined

By love, before we were born.


It seems Love has no boundaries,

Not time, nor space, nor fear.

With us it always has been,

Just is, not there, but here.


We wander along life's highway,

And many a soul we meet.

But the connection we share together,

Just is.... and can't be beat.


The connection must be simply,

A sign from up above.

For we are never really alone,

Within us is pure love.


When that purity of love within

Bonds with the soul of another.

It transcends both space and time

From one lifetime to another.


The Deepest signs of love are rare,

They truly are a treasure.

And knowing you... it surely is,

The purest, truest pleasure.


Just is...are powerful words to say.

They really hold great faith.

To just let go and let 'Just Is',

Will bind us to our fate.


It is our joy and destiny,

To be bound by God's desire.

The waters of the Universe,

Could not put out that fire.


In His plan, what will be, JUST IS

And no matter what we do,

Signs of Love are his guiding force

To gently carry us through.

© Carol Skeggs and Neil Sperling June, 2003



Our bond is an example of the highest level of love. One that simply said "JUST IS".

See my Four Levels of Love

I hope you have a bond you can relate to when you read this.

Carol and I have a love that transcends time and distance. She is in Australia and I am in Canada. It is a love, respect and appreciation that "Just Is."

It was fun and warm writing this together and I share this as a tribute to the bond Carol and I will always share.

I'll Love you ALWAYS Carol! :-)

I love this, Neil, and it is so possible and so real. Please, when you have time, read my "Love without Guise". Let me know what you think. I love this and am astounded as it is another chain in the link that shows me with certainty that God is with us and watching. Things do not happen randomly. There is a purpose. I recognize great meaning and love and the importance of connection in your piece. Nothing is impossible, Neil.

Neil, this is so beautiful. The bond you share across the distances is strong and energising.. I love so many lines , especially..

'To just let go and let 'Just Is',

Will bind us to our fate'

Thanks for sharing this...voted up & beautiful.

Beautiful poem. It is indeed a blessing to have this special kind of relationship in our life. God bless !

Amy - Thanks for warm response. I believe in the law of cause and effect rather than purpose and predetermined events. When one is open to the love that is unending and also without beginning, that openness is the cause which attracts the effect.

I agree 100% on your comment re connection. Connection is everything.

Still the difficulty some people have at accepting the fact not everyone can truly give love at as high a level that they may be able to give. (see four levels of love and note my light bulb theory)

I appreciate our connection Amy. Your poems inspired me to share his one.

Ingenira - Yes - a blessing everyone can have if they allow themselves to let go and connect deep with the universal one. Thanks for the kind comment

...well your collaboration must be working .... because there is poetic chemistry here of the combustible kind!

.....and over 1 million followers with 14 hubs - you must be some kind of genius - and not just because you're a fellow Canadian who happens to live down the road from in Port Dover. I'm in serious in financial doo-doo I may have to write to you and talk!

I definitely had someone to think about on this one- I could relate. Great words here!


Neil Sperling profile image

Neil Sperling 5 years ago from Port Dover Ontario Canada Author

Arb - great comment 2 souls in one body

epigramman - one million is a bit of an exaggeration

b. Malin - it is a friendship with deep love, appreciation and in fact love - not quite in the league of long distance relationship as that implies committed to only each other.

heart4theword - it was special - and the poem fell onto the page without effort.

Izetti - cool - you could relate - that IS special

QudsiaP1, schoolmarm, chspublish, Joshua Kell, acaetnna, and Dim Flaxenwick, - thank you all for reading and taking the time to let me know you enjoyed this piece.

Hello Neil,

Thanks for sharing this lovely poem, making a deep connection and bond with another person sometimes happens when you least expect it (as it did when I met my husband). Even if we are far away from the ones we love, this bond can never ever be broken. Voted up!

My Grandmother used to say, "Watch for the signs." I'd ask, "How do I know what to watch for?" She'd simply reply, "Watch harder." I believe that signs are all around us, and what my Grandmother said applied to all facets of life, including love. Great poem Neil...and Carol.
