In the nether land of sleep and dream
Flung across dimensions by cosmic dance,
My ascended spirit has met its twin,
Someone to distantly love and romance.
Colours yellow, grey and piercing blue,
An unlived barren memory made to last.
A drawn serious face, do I know you?
Have we touched before through karmic past?
Crow’s feet around his eyes speak separation.
In an instant this too will come to pass.
Distant centuries where we missed creation
Of eternity never destined for us.
Twenty years on someone walked in the street.
My heart recognised those eyes of the ghost.
The ears ringing this violent beat,
A lifetime of longing for that memory lost.
In the caramel sun of that afternoon
Trembling and pinned to the seat
I have let his face pass. Very soon
In another life we shall finally meet.
