Destiny

This is dedicated to the other half 
of that eternal ring, 
The compliment to Adam known as 
Eve, 
A masterpiece painted for me; 
If there should ever come a day where she 
questions the authenticity of our test of time, 
I’ll illustrate our history book to her; 
Not wanting to jinx the future, but rather show 
her, that just like the predetermined 
moves in chess, 
God played it, so that our hearts could 
meet at checkmate; 
For just the knowledge that Monday leads 
into Tuesday, 
Our first moment together doesn’t define a 
coincidence, 
But yet a scattered puzzle, that when 
put together, 
Made us fit perfectly; 
I felt that invisible rope connecting us, and 
as it decreased in size, 
Our conversation began, and from there
the story told itself; 
Stories like ours are the cornerstone 
of answers people debate all their lives for; 
Since the day I knew I had the ability to 
care outside of myself, 
I craved for it; 
I envisioned us resembling two unfamiliar images 
in another memorable portrait, 
Then years later, having a proper introduction 
in another memorable portrait, 
Where we would discuss of our two circles meeting 
previously, 
And bring to life the world “fate”; 
With 23 chapters already behind me, 
I hope history writes another hundred years for 
us, in plural skies.

    I could only hope and pray, one day, these beautiful thoughts would be said to me...even though i would surely cry. I am in love with the Adam & Eve theme, yet i do feel i am ready to venture there with my words yet. ;) Someday. Thank you for sharing, hit my heart!
