i knew that somehow 
you were not a stranger to me 
that smile...unforgettable 
a sense that i have known you well 
a distant echo stirs deeply within my heart 
for we were once dust within dust 
cast unto the wind 
by the hand of destiny 
 do you not feel as i do 
is this day that stroke of irreversible fate 
our ancestors once whispered to 
the wizard of time 
that the second would come to pass 
when we would be one again 
 is  today not that  promised moment  in time 
 it must be  you 
i feel your legacy within my soul 
as surely as the air that i breath 
i have felt the tantalizing magic 
of your smile in a lifetime past 
i have  tasted the richness of your soft caress 
there was a time my  beautiful love 
when everything that ever mattered to me 
was witnessed within the re?ection of your green eyes 
you were unforgettable then... you are  unforgettable now 
 the memory of your gentleness 
lingers like perpetual twilight 
i feel your heartbeat deep within my own 
you are truly  her ... as if  it could not be 
In the space of time we call forever  
there was only one of you 
we have belonged...two as one throughout eternity 
as surely as dusk follows the morning dawn 
the legacy of your smile rests forever within my sou 
 i have missed you more than words could ever say 
i lived lifetimes waiting for this day

    this is a poem filled with spirits,and its magic that goes along with it. -i knew that somehow you were not a stranger to me- -you truly are her- very interesting, to see a stranger, but you know their soul so well, from is always a mystery but always so clear.i see the imagery in your deep heart, one day soon i wish you will meet with her once more. -Always&Foreve Lynette
