When We Both Can See Eternity

If we could only comprehend 
The miracle of this hour;
Awareness of existence 
Is beyond poetic power.  
As something we tend to overlook
In our daily routine woes;
Lost in pain and suffering 
Forgetting what we know.
Deep within and out again,
Intangibly unbound;
The fact that we’re even here at all
Is incomprehensibly profound.
No less than flower stems
Than stars that swirl and dance;
No less than a baby’s smile
Or true love and romance.
And sorrow, pain and tears like rain
That never stop their fall;
Therein too lie miracles
Perhaps there, most of all.
From out of ashes, rises Phoenix,
Out of fire comes the gold;
Life is more than meets the eye
Or what we can behold.
But I for one and you for two 
May meet where souls collide;
And when we both can see eternity 
This moment will have died.

    i love the way you choose a very deep and mysterious topic and explore it in rhyme. i especially like the fact that you haven't attributed this "awareness of existence" to religion, as if often the case in a poem about this idea.

    Ilene, I sincerely appreciate your comments and couldn't agree with you more regarding religion. They're all over rated (IMHO) and we should focus more on the miracle of life and all its wonders as opposed to the belief systems we've been taught to follow blindly. Thanks again. Terry
