Poem: Will Our Paths Ever Cross Again?

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

will-we-ever-see-each-other

Gazing through a box

I see a window,

as I glance about the dark screen

I see the twilight shimmering

from the stars above,

As I picture your face

below the moon.


I see you

flying upon a cloud

moving peacefully through the night sky.


I feel myself wishing

I could be there beside you,

yet in my heart I realize

it could not be.


So I fly in a separate direction

to live my life

in the manner my heart dreams.


As I wave goodbye

the clouds move in,

the stars slowly fade,

as I wonder if our paths

will ever cross again.
