What is this connection

that my soul feels

when I look

into your eyes

Could it be a past life recall

for I know our paths

must have crossed

many lifetimes before

My heart has opened

Like a flower in spring

full of sunlight and joy

yet I am frightened

that once more this love

perhaps is not to be

Yet, it has brought me love

and understanding of self

and the Divine within me

a gift I will always treasure

And so I thank you for

unlocking my heart

for now I can love again

to whomever awaits me
