Poem: Destined to Meet

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Destined to Meet" is a poem describing how it often seems people are destined to meet at a certain place and time.

How you instantly feel like old friends when your paths have never crossed.

You feel a connection.

There is a strong bond that mere words cannot explain.

"Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams "


Destined to Meet

Even though both of us
traveled through life
not knowing one another,
it seems like we are old friends.

Like we have been on the same path
walking in opposite directions
destined to meet at this place and time.

Just the thought of one of us becoming lost,
seeing the pain of our love
gradually fade away,
is a fear
we both keep hidden.

As our love grows stronger
those feelings will vanish
letting us embrace life
sharing our passions together.

We share a bond
that mere words cannot explain,
one which few people ever discover,
one that cannot be torn apart.


People destined to meet will do so, apparently by chance, at precisely the right moment.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
