Mates of the Soul (NoTmi)



From afar he reached out, and with great care
Touched her heart,
Yea her very soul.
Could this be?
The man?
That special man?
"The man that only my soul knows?"
"Has he at long last arrived?"
"I pray thee, all heaven and earth, all that is seen
and that which is invisible to the eye, I pray thee,
bless this friendship, yea this love my heart cry's for. . .
yea screams for! For one such as he, if he wilt love and cherish me,
I can do no more and be no more than my best for him and myself.
If thou wilt bless thou me with this one request,
to thee and he I will ever be betrothed of heart and soul."

Even all of creation could not deny such a request,
The quest for true mates of heart and soul.
