Seeking Spirituality

My Soul Knows Your Soul

No matter where we are, I know we will remain friends,

For our souls have met and touched,

And now my soul knows your soul.

When we meet there's hopeful anticipation for happiness;

Our souls reach out to one another to make it so.

When your soul soothes mine,

I feel recognition and admiration,

Comfort and contentment,

Joy and peace.

If we part, God will keep our souls together,

Because souls can not be separated

Once they have touched in His presence.

They become as one,

With a deeper knowledge of self.

Forever.Whether exploring the sun and the stars, angels, dreams and reality, or the promise of love, author Christine Dieckhoff shares her perspective of the world in which we live.
