There Are Moments
In Our Lives
That Are Meant To Be

The Same Is True
With The People
That Cross Our Path
On Life’s Journey

Meant To Be Friends
Meant To Be Lovers
Meant To Be Soulmates

Precious To Us
In Every Way
And Destined
To Be So

The Sad Part Is
We So Often Forget
And Want To Deny
That Our Meant To Be
Are Not Always
Meant To Be

And Our Meant To Be
Kindred Spirits
And Soulmates
Aren’t Always Meant To Be
Forever, Either

It’s Hard To Hold Onto
A Moment
It’s Hard To Let Go Of
Someone You Loved

And Watch Them
Walk Away On
Their Own Path,
That Leaves You

Meant To Be Moments
And Meant To Be People
Can Capture Our Hearts
And Our Souls
If Only As Briefly
As A Shooting Star
Across A Midnight Sky
Before They Are Gone
But, The Memories
Of Those Meant To Be’s
Will Last A Lifetime

  1. This is such a very poignant concept, expressed with great insight and in beautiful prose. As seems to be the case with the fellow kindred souls on this platform, this speaks directly to me and expresses what I need to hear at this time. Thank you.

    1. Dear A, I think you just made my week! Your comment and words are too kind to me! I cannot tell you have wonderful it is to know that my words have been helpful or comforting to you! I guess every poet’s goal is to touch another’s heart or soul with the words that they write and you have helped to validate me as a poet and I am so indebted to You for that!!!

      The pleasure is all mine to be sure! Not knowing your situation you may find some other pieces of mine in my Archives that you might enjoy or find helpful. If not, I would be happy to attempt one just for you???
