Distant Twin

Distant Twin

A man from a distant land

He sees my face and knows

That I am the one he has searched for all his life

 

His soul has been longing to meet his cosmic twin

She is a woman with the mind of a child

Entrenched in all her fears

 

He beckons her to come to him and to leave all fears behind

In love there is no fear, we agree, and yet how our two hearts bleed

 

Her soul has been in agony in want of the merging of an eternal bliss

He is a man of will and intellect

Philosopher’s eyes and poet’s heart

 

Together they come

And together they talk

Hand in hand they walk

 

Often in harmony

Dreams are shared

Often in pain

The dreams are shadowed

 

By the little girl’s crying

And the big man’s will

 

And often by the little boy’s cries

And often by the grown woman’s sighs

 

She carries inside

The pain and anger of the past

 

He carries within

The wisdom of the world

 

To cry and to die and to live and to breathe

All over again and again

 

Will we ever dream again…

In the distance

but close

my distant twin
