Motivational Monday Poem: A Lonesome Path

An independent spirit journeying on

With hope and passion as her guide

Walking alone most of her life

At a pace too clouded by dreams

For any romantic partner to catch up

My soul’s mate walks on

His journey distant from mine

Have our paths crossed

Or veered in parallel for a stretch of time

Forty years I’ve walked on my own

Never wanting a partner for companionship

I could not settle when my soul knew better

Yet it’s cognizant of being alone

In a world meant to love in pairs

See clear, Spirit, as you move forward

Not only with your eyes

But your whole being

And be aware when your two paths cross.
