I resisted the feelings that desired to overwhelm me,
Borrowed from my ancestors, to safeguard their honour,
Lending me the strength
To turn away from temptation.
But memories of you shone brilliantly gold;
A heavenly sent spotlight made to enlighten me
Of destiny’s date,
Revealing a love, present all along,
Hidden by some divine darkness.
Your constant presence,
The steady look of your eyes,
The quiet sound of your voice, a mantle of protection;
A shield warding off discord.
Fate’s invisible string,
There from the moment of creation,
Pulling taut till this moment, has begun to spring back;
Rebounding us to each other,
As if there had never been those years of space between us.
