Soul Mates

Soul Mates

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

So many lifetimes come and go between ill spent youth and the grave Hopes and dreams of generations Are the memories we all save

"

 


How many times have I met you

in the strangers that passed me by

Were you the one that touched my coat

the friend that once kissed me goodbye

 

How often have we stood in line

just to watch loved ones go to war

Then brushed away the tears of hope

as they ran off to join the Corps

 

Were you the one whose heart had ached

when my ship drifted out to sea

The foundered soul whose anchor broke

the one whose dreams had yearned for me

 

Are we destined to always be

just passing strangers in the night

Whose ebbing flowing tides of love

never met when the time was right

 

So many lifetimes come and go

between ill spent youth and the grave

Hopes and dreams of generations

hold the memories we all crave

 

Perhaps I'm just the little child

with a heart that once broke in two

Who walks the well-worn streets of old

searching for memories of you

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
Don't we all wonder if another is the one for whom we were meant?
How many lifetimes must we pass by before our soul finds it's hearts desire?
This was for the green eyes cased in Honey Hue, that I once knew.
May she find this dream to be her own .

This piece simply makes me swoon in the ideals of such times. This is by far, one of my favorites. Tate, you have donr it again, made me simply have to stop and stare at the beautiful scene you have laid out here. "Are we destined to always be,
just passing strangers in the night" Even for a moment to pass by one so precious, it would be worth a lifetime. I can nearly hear the brass band in the distance.

Thought provoking and romantic poem. Beautifully composed. Some people are successful in meeting their soul mate,.most I believe are not in the right place at the right time. However, I do believe there is a soul mate for everyone out there. You just have to find them. Not easy in my opinion. All good wishes Tate.

Memories of war and leaving loved ones, from the picture, could not be more relevant today, but for different reasons. I can picture a teen in the now, writing something similar in the future, bit regretting never seeng their face for having theirs glued to their screen. :)
If you think about it, meeting that one who will change your life has suchmassive odds against it, that its a miracle it ever happens, yet it does. But we shall always have regrets path to look forward to, as we ponder all the possibles that could have played out.
You have got my mind busy with all my possibles playing. Right now im thinking how grateful I am for a date not working out. She had a cake shop and I would have been a blimp by now :)
Keep pondering.

Thank you so much
I think you speak for us all, in this well presented poem. It is said, that one meets one's Soul Mate many times in many guises, but one never actually marries her (him). Except, perhaps, as you suggest, after we have passed through many lifetimes! Or, perhaps, in the Great Beyond?

love those Supremes ..how young they all look ..had to put them on full screen and enjoy it all so as not to get distracted while reading your poem .. those sister back up singers broke into a dance step from the 60's .. i think it was called the sailor .. i am pretty sure Diana was singing right to me in those close ups ;)

it can drive one mad in the wondering eh!? so easy to remain in love with the "dream" ..not easy to love the one your with ;)) i don't think i could take more than one life riding those ridges of love and back .. but living a life never being in love is worse .. heart break teaches so much ... works a difficult hammering in our character .. your poem (as always) elevates my thoughts to good things this morning Tate ..

Perhaps I am still the little child
with a heart once broken in two
That walks the well-worn streets of old
searching for memories of you

Lovely

I believe in soul mates

I do as well thank you
All it ever takes is a left turn instead of a right, or perhaps missing that bus by just one precious minute, and our lives are irrevocable changed and set in a different direction. Those two simple words, 'what if,' speak volumes, as does this poem. T
