Flowers and butterfly wings

Mine is a restless one

still searching for what was

what was meant to be

and what might yet be

Perhaps I’m just a dreamer

but that’s fine with me

to believe my other half

is out there searching for me

It might just be that time

when these things start to matter

where you’ve lived and done

most of it all, yet there’s this quest

Then someone sent a reminder

that showed you what’s possible

something you had been missing

and did not realize until you met

So yes, there is contentment

in the many gifts that life brings

the bees and flowers and things

and beautiful butterflies with wings

But still someone whispers

that this is not enough

You might be disappointed –

but the feeling doesn’t quite stop

That while the dice has been cast

not everything is made out to last

Would you rather wallow in a black hole

or try finding that other piece of your soul?

    1. I guess its the latter I was writing about – not tarnishing everything as a big hole. Maybe I took a bit of poetic licence from the movie “the theory of everything” which talks of the black hole in scientific terms but ultimately it is that pondering as you’ve described it – a phase I guess…

  1. Keep writing, it is there that you will find that lost part of your soul. 🙂

    Hey Chev, my sister called me today. She loved the birthday card/poem so much that she shared it with our mom, too. She said it was the best gift she got this year. Thanks for sharing the prompt and inspiring me to write it.

    1. Oh I’m so happy that she appreciated it. Well done! I guess that “something more” is a spiritual thing when you tally what your scores are. We’re lucky if we’re still given the time to do that. Yes writing is a great vehicle for reflection:-) and even helping realise that you have what you thought you had lost:-)
