The words were never left unspoken,
destiny was not ours to share in unity,
the knowledge of hearts ending up broken,

did not stop us from defying destiny.


Our Destiny


For a period in our life,
we defied our destiny,

trying to make true,
what wasn’t meant to be,
now sadness fills my being,

while remembering your face,
now longing fills my heart,
while wanting your embrace.

Aching for your tender touch,
a void exists within,

wishing for your whispered words,
the heartache never ending,
memories within my mind,

haunting me relentless,
never ceasing the tormenting,
confronting me with emptiness.

Emptiness within me,
within my heart, my soul, our lives,
going through the seasons,

while our destiny deprives,
our love from one another,
acceptance ‘s all that’s left,

slowly winning impassable ground,
our love will stay bereft.

We walk along on separate paths,
apart we will continue,

to live, to love, to give, to share,
our life with one who’s true,
now we’re living our separate lives,
searching for the company,
who will match our lonely soul,
and we’ll fulfil our destiny…
