Soul Mate

plans and dreams
shot down
with the scatter gun
of life
are nothing

YOU, 
the soul of  me,
always
give
more

Oh so sweet!! So much in these few words - and I just so like life as a scattergun. So true. But, the love that is constant and true - how that made me smile.

Gail, this is such a lovely poem about your soul mate. May that love continue to grow like one of those strong trees at your place.

You were wondering how to find Sanaa and Toni Spencer. They posted at Poetry Pantry today. Take a look, and when you find Sanaa Rizvi and Kanzensakura, you will have found them. (Smiles) And I know they will appreciate a comment. Smiles again.

As for the poem, I really think it is wonderful that you have found your soulmate. In fact, you are BOTH lucky indeed.

The value of companionship cannot be over overrated as it certainly makes life worth living.

This made me think that perhaps our hopes and dreams are sometimes in front of us but we do not recognise them..a powerful and wise poem...and i love the last photo particularly it completes the story

Does he see the sweet things you say about him and your marriage? I suspect he knows anyway without reading. Beautiful feelings expressed even more beautifully.
