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.

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.

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.
ur poem is unbelievable exactly the situation i am in with the love of my life she said it's not right time but my heart burns waiting for her return and wouldn't know what to do if she didn't come back
I absolutely love this has great significance to my 'situation' thanks Tess
This was wonderful!
I can relate to this poem I fell in love with a guy who is now my best friend our love was the wrong time and place as Im married and am staying married. we are so alike in so many ways and so connected sometimes our thoughts are exactly same and its scary!Life can be so cruel
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.
I like this poem very much. Thank you.
Beautifully expressed thoughts. I was trying to figure out the words to express how I was left feeling, but you did a marvelous job.
