I have a Soul Mate

I have a Soul Mate

A Poem by Anita B Jacques
"

Dedicated to my late Husband the love of my life, my Soul Mate.

"

I have a Soul Mate.
My Mate's imprint deep in my Soul.
So few, the years he was given.
We wanted to grow old together.
Our plans and dreams faded away.

 On this earth, he his no more.


His face sealed in my mind,
more familiar then my own.
His space not empty,
But  full with wonderful memories.
When my Soul is longing for his mate.
I'll wrap my arms around me.


I close my eyes and see.
Deep blue eyes smiling at me.
Funny faces, only he could make.
How proud he looked
When he learned and play my favorite songs.
 He had a gift for telling jokes
We would laugh so hard together.


I hum the song of our first dance.
"My one and only you".
He couldn't be any closer to me.
God and I knew well
the sadness in his heart from day's past,
Hidden behind a clown's mask.
His long struggles with illnesses 
The high measure of his inner strength.


The physical part of him is gone.
His Soul live's forever.
He won his fight against pain.
When finally told, he could let go.
The weight of his pain,
by the Grace of God,
Was lifted off my shoulders.


He is at peace.
His spirit is not far, only "Time".
The physical love is gone.
Our Souls in love Forever.

18 years ago now. They went by so fast, the memories are with us. Talk about him without the pain.

A moving and romantic poem, Anita. How proud your late Husband would have been, knowing of this fine tribute?

I see verse one, as particularly sad. It makes references to their "plans and dreams", having faded away, and how they had looked forward to growing old together. Touching indeed, without being exagerated in any way.

Whilst not perfect as a poem, it is still rather spiritual and uplifting to read! Even the loss of that special someone in our lives, does not necessarily mean that our own lives become worthless. There is always some opportunity, for us to make a fresh start!

This is so touching! I find it really astounding that you could write something like this. I dont have a husband, but I could not imagine dealing with a loss like that. Incredible, thank you for sharing!

This is beautiful, a prayer of thanks, a tribute to true love, the knowledge you're still together and always will be. It's wonderful writing and though so sad, is somehow comforting to know how deeply he remains with you, is part of you.

Your style of writing, in this, is virtually faultless, it flows, it says enough.

Thank you.

Our soul mates are never far away. It is sad when they are no longer visible to us, but someday you will see him again.

Dear Annie!
They are our soul mate, and though gone in physical presence, they are not forgotten, as you so vividly portray here.
This is indeed a beautiful tribute to your late husband!
Love, Sheila
