The One

The One

The soul that finds its kindred twin
on this short walk on earth
is blessed by love immeasureable
and equally is cursed

The flame that reunites the two
and welds the painful break
is hotter than the rising sun
as it heals the sweetest ache

But when the time to come is here
and the earthly time is done
one must leave the other then
even knowing they're the one

I ponder when the time does pass
and the others time is here
will the flame that is my other half
wait for me over there

Will the hand of love reach out for me
and pull me across the flame
will the one who now completes my soul
know that I'd do the same?

Love big, love without condition, love forever
