Waiting For You
Richard Lynch

I fly down from my cloud up in Heaven
and sail over a mist-blooming sea.
As I float to the ground,
you are silently found
at a grave and still mourning for me.

In your world, it's been almost a year now,
endless time filled with gut-wrenching pain.
We were husband and wife
in a beautiful life,
but we came to the end of our reign.

Still, our bonding goes well beyond feelings,
which is something you've already known,
for whenever you die
and you're up in the sky,
your past timeline and memories are shown.

But right now in that form you know nothing
about how we were born as a soul
and then ripped through the heart,
loving halves torn apart,
and our subsequent quest to be whole.

You know naught of the eternal struggle
in corporeal darkness and light,
or the miracle feat
of how we came to meet,
and how now our existence is right.

I've just turned down a chance to go mortal,
to return to a bodily view,
for in time you will be
on a path back to me.
Until then I'll be waiting for you.

"Richard, 2 hearts that beat as one and their souls are bound by destiny and ecstacy and fantasy and fulfillment...and like your poem shares, nothing can tear that love apart...not even death... So tragic. So real. Time on this earth so precious and together means every moment counts. Time on this earth with that special "someone" means time eternal. As you will know, I love your poem. Even the sadness and death show meaning in life in such a beautiful poem... Hope it means a future together, on earth and in death...." -- Helen, Marietta, GA, USA.
"Richard, this is by far the most touching poem i've ever read...I'm speechless..." -- Ryan Morales.
