View Full Version : This time of year

This time of year makes me think about family and friends past and present and I think back how many times did I take them for granted by not saying things like, I love you, when I should or could have. To my friends by not saying, thank you when I should or could have not thinking that tomorrow they may be gone.
I came across a poem the other day that I think stress this point it's by Lia Fail.

Have you ever felt like you knew someone a long, long time ago?
Another place, another time, a friendship of the souls?
Two people who share a bond for reasons neither know,
A feeling that they were friends, a long, long time ago?

Did they stumble onto each other by pure circumstance,
Or was it fate and destiny that played a certain hand?
Two souls intertwined, they are worlds apart,
But the soul, it knows no difference, in matters of the heart.

Somehow they are drawn together, fate has brought them back,
Each living worlds apart, they journey separate paths.
When this life is over, and a new life begins,
Their souls will find each other, two souls that we call friends.

I like that, Walt... thanks for posting it.

This is indeed a time of year to reflect not only on how far we've come and what we've gained but what we've experienced and lost along the way...
