HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR SOULMATE? – ENCORE

By Charles Robert Lindholm  2-3-2017 at 4:00 a.m. (The motivation for “Conscious Coma” set to be published on WordPress on 2-4-2017)

How do you know if you have found your Soulmate?  When you both pick out the exact same card for your Anniversary!

When two hearts beat as one. When you always get excited about being able to get back home to see your Sweetie.  When your Beloved never lets you get out the door without a kiss and an admonition to “Be Careful”!!

When you look around your life and your home and the most important thing you see is your Soulmate.  When you can remember where and when and why you did this or that and how you came to pick out that souvenir or admire an old photo you will know the feeling – and I hope you will!

We live in a retirement community (15,000 people) not too far from the main road, and it never fails that at least once a day you can hear a siren go by and the reality of “The Circle of Life” is once again impressed upon you.  When I was younger I could never quite understand how it was that so often when one spouse of a couple who had been married for  30, 40 or 50 years passed on that the other spouse, who seemed to be in good health, would be very likely to pass on within a year of losing their Soulmate.  Now that I have a Soulmate I understand.  They lose the desire to live on without their Beloved!!!

Losing the desire to live – It seems so crazy when the basic instinct of life is self survival at all costs, but for those who have been lucky enough to have found a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense.

I always feel so sad for the one who is left behind and I have had too many opportunities to see it up close – and we want to be like the ending in the movie “The Notebook” or like the very most romantic shot in the whole movie “Titanic” where the little old couple is shown spooning in their cabin as the water is coming in (that shot made me cry).

If you have been lucky enough to have had a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense that you would want to be in Heaven again!

SOULMATES (VALENTINE’S DAY REFLECTIONS)

Somehow, out of all the twists and turns

our lives could have taken, and out of all

the chances we might have missed, it almost

seems like we were given a meant – to – be

moment … to meet, to get to know each

other, and to set the stage for a special

            togetherness.

 

When I’m with you, I know I am in

the presence of someone who makes my

life more complete.  I feel like you’re

my soul mate, and I want you to know

that my world is reassured by you, my

tomorrows need to have you near, so

many of my smiles depend on you and

my heart is so thankful that you are here.

                        I LOVE YOU!

A SOULMATE

A Soulmate is someone you can

be completely comfortable with.

Someone with whom you share unconditional love

and when you look into each other’s eyes,

you know that you are home.

UNDER THE SPELL OF A LOVER’S MOON

By Keza/Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm

Under The Spell
Of A Lover’s Moon
Her Heart Was
Once Broken

With The Foolish
Dreams And Lies
Of Youth
And Young Love

She No Longer Cries
For What Was Lost
And Could Have Been
So Long Ago,
Except In The Midnight Light
Of A Lover’s Moon

When Forgotten
Memories Escape
Her Heart And
Invade Her Dreams

She Found
The Strength
Inside Her
Heart And Soul

To Stand Up 

To Forgive
To Forget
To Let Go
And To Move On

She Looked Around
And Found
A Different Path
For Her Life
That Is Her Own

The One She Shares
With Her Daughter
