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.

Poem Summary

Will our paths ever cross again is a poem about meeting someone you wish you could share a lifetime with but you realize it could not work. You look up at the night sky and picture his face. You go in separate directions, wondering if your paths will cross again.

Will Our Paths Ever Cross Again?

Gazing through a box

I see a window,

glancing about the dark screen

I see the twilight shimmer

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 yearning

to be there beside you,

yet my heart realizes

it can 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,

leaving me to wonder if our paths

will ever cross again.

It is my great hope that our paths, however long and winding, will cross again.

— Jonathan Safran Foer
