A Poem by Riley McKinney

There are people in your life 
that aren't always around,
and when they are it's not always to be with you  specifically.
But you are okay with that...
one day,
they are around you again. 
And it's just like every other time they are around,
 their normal presence,
 they are there and you are there too.
And it's not until the next day,
when they show up again,
that you realize
this time, it's different, 
The connection is stronger.
And while you aren't quite at the center,
You know that you are more visible to them than before 
and they are more visible to you than before.
And slowly the visibility becomes 20/20. 
And all you see is them and all they see is you.
And all of a sudden you wonder if this was always meant to be.
And you wonder if this will always be meant to be.
And you wonder if this was written in the stars.
And then the future seems more exciting and you can't help but feel comfort from the idea of forever. 
Especially when your forever is their forever.

Soulmates/soulflame is a complex thread of life...universal timing creates many mysteries within such a situation, lovely piece :)

Wonderful! It is my favorite piece among your all writing. I get what you actually try to convey and I too agree with this. True, sometime a most common relation seems to be different and it is more welcomed to us.Perhaps it is written in the note book of our fate.
Thanks for sharing.

full of hope and faith - there are people who appears to us as ordinary, then as time passes, the relationship deepens and we realize we have an affinity/connection with them that wasn't felt or obvious in the first place - that we find them kindred souls - relationships take time and hard work to mature and deepen in the root :)
