About the Poem

Meeting a soulmate is very special. But sometimes a relationship isn't meant to be, and so they must separate. Yet, in their hearts they know that it is only until next time when they meet.

This touched the depths of my being, so perfectly does it describe my situation. I, too, must wait until it's the right time and place. My hope is that it is this life-time not another. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of writing with us all.

Till Next We Meet

I knew that you couldn't stay -
That you were simply on loan to me for a short while,
And I've loved every minute,
And will count the seconds,
Till next we meet.

And l know that l will always have you in my heart,
In my mind, and in my soul -
Where I've always known you,
Where l will keep you,
Till next we meet.

So, although I'm sad that you are leaving,
I know that the best decisions are not the easy ones.
Now is not the right time or place,
And I'll try to be patient,
Till next we meet.

I know until then l will hear your voice in my heart -
See you face in my memories,
And feel your touch in my dreams,
Till next we meet.

Awesome, I teared up as soon as I started reading it! My b/f if moving away and I love him deeply, but he doesn't love me, so you can see why this poem affected me as it did.

Beautifully expressed thoughts. I was trying to figure out the words to express how I was left feeling, but you did a marvelous job.
