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 about 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 with a strong bond that mere words cannot explain.

"Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams "

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

— Ralph Waldo Emerson


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 thinking 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.

"Close to You" by Carpenters

Thank you.

I have often heard that our souls search out the ones we knew from a previous life.

It's like we go through eternity with them without really knowing.

Of course, this involves reincarnation which is another story. Does this really happen?

Some believe...some do not.

Take care & enjoy each moment.

I truly enjoyed reading your comment.

Beautifully written piece. Yes, Seers talk about this. It happens because you knew each other in former lives. Few can recall their past incarnations. The Beloved seals the memory, for our own sake. Charming piece.

I love this, it describes perfectly what two people feel when they know they're made for each other. Destiny is a strange thing, sometimes fickle but often right.
