0019 The Kindred Spirit [09 August 1995]

Author’s note: This is one of my personal favorites from this era of my writing.

Who is wise,
Beyond his years.
In some ways,
In others,

A young man of mystery,
Came into my life.
Whom I tried to understand,
But could not.
Whose spirit was kindred of mine,
Whose life was separate of mine.

I felt he was a friend,
Even if it was only a second,
So it seemed,
In time.

His life touched mine
In unspeakable ways.
It was brief,
As the way time goes,
Yet it seemed a lifetime.

Who is said to be wise,
Beyond her years.
In some ways,
In others,

Though we’re far apart,
He is never alone.
For he is always in my heart,
Wherever he may be.
I can hear his prayers,
His cries for help,
And I hope he hears mine.

I’ll never see him again,
He is far away from here.
But not so far
In my memories and in my heart.
