Parallel Worlds

Twin Souls

By Cindy CalderPublished about a month ago Updated about a month ago 1 min read
Top Story - June 2024

"Love is a magic ray emitted from the burning core of the soul and illuminating the surrounding earth. It enables us to perceive life as a beautiful dream between one awakening and another." Kahlil Gibran

....

I can feel you in the depths of my mind, lingering on the remnants of wind.

Echoes of another, with the lack of a residual image, it’s all I can send.

I want to know you, feel you, breathe you in the glorious, sun-filled sky.

Instead, I’ll send billowing clouds, so in your mind, I will live and never die.

But shall we, two linked souls, ever meet, perhaps on the edge of the ocean’s shore?

If hope manifests and bestows kindness, then yes, it will surely open the door.

Despite your kind words, formidable despair steps into my heart and invades.

Don’t let fear overcome what you’re aware of, though it remains hidden by the shade.

You speak words of encouragement, but tell me: how do you truly know?

I believe we two souls, like stars in twin galaxies, do exist; they are not faux.

In the sunlight, you’ve created a smile. Shall I send echoes of it on the next ray?

No need for it’s already arrived to wrap me thoroughly in overwhelming array.

Two souls, two lives, two beings are we, though our hearts beat together as one.

Despite the vast distance in two planes, one day, together, our time will be spun.

When that wonderful, celebrated day arrives, I’ll clasp you tight in a moment divine.

And our love will be endless as we two, ever twain, coexist in a world so sublime.
