About the Poem

The most profound wisdom comes from trials, pain and hardship-- often it is such a surprise--and it always takes hindsight to see the full measure of growth and blessing obtained from the experience.

There comes a time in some lives when our physical bodies fail; for whatever reason. But until our last breath, our soul is complete in every way. If we have already made that soul connection -- It never dies.


With healthy body and mind, showing love is easy.
It's the things we do that show we care.
The feelings from our heart we say.
We take for grant this power will always be there.

When physical body and mind become marred with suffering,
We know then the truth that was always there.
We're not connected through the simple surface.
Amassing revelation, we are united by the spirit we share.

Only then is overwhelming love felt.
The easy affection is stripped away.
Raw heart seizing, soul searing connection is left.
Feeling this, there is nothing we have to say.

I loved that poem! It is so true; only when one has felt a special connection with another person can we begin to comprehend the enormity of that bond. Wow. great words. I can identify completely.
This indivdual has fundamental character- something so many of us leave out when we deciding who we want to share our space with..... whether it be a lover or friend. I commend the Arthor- I rate this Poem a 10!!!!
Very compassionate, well written, this poet has talent!
