So you think that your lonely

Where does it go

In life's chance meetings

All those others to know

I find my choices channel my way

The past haunts me

But it's only today

Letting go of the energies

Of many loves lost

My rewards and benefits

More than equal the cost

In the souls evolution of meeting

You find it's just yourself that your greeting

Adventures in personal connection

All the lost loving souls heading back to the collection

Oh it's so strange, and wonderful, and supremely profound

To find I'm touching the heavens standing here on the ground

This was the first of what I consider to be a good poem that I wrote after the death of my partner of 14 years. It kicked off a very fertile period of my writing. It signaled to me I was ready to reach out to others again, which I did.

      Thank you Carolyn. It was the first really good one after Marty's passing and opened up a very fertile period of writing for me. And it's one of my favorites.

      Lovely, this could be a song with lyrics.
