Poetry: Partners of the soul

Relieved we didn’t complicate it in that way

And kept a golden friendship anyway

Free from the mundanities that fuel our strife

And, all too often, become our Life


Whoever said “there are those we marry… and those we love”

Said it all in simple verse

So, I’m happy to find you in this irony

Free of expectation, promises and fated anomaly


Yet, in another world, we would be such keepers of our word

Such partners of the soul, such breakers of the mould

That it takes courage not to succumb

To what, (in this life), we must not become!
