She sees me when I think I am invisible
Knows where I am when I am lost
She makes me smile when I forgot how
Knows what it takes to make me laugh
She says what I need to hear
Using words I never knew existed
She lifts me up when I am down
Using energies of her own to help
She makes me think I am special
Telling me how I am unique
She pulls me out of my hidden place
Telling me it is not as fearful as I think
She talks to me for hours upon hours
Writes when we cannot speak
She makes up words to make me feel better
Writes them so I can say them back
She is the one person I can always confide in
I can tell her anything that’s on my mind
She listens to me and then makes me laugh
She is my Optimus Amicus, my soul mate, my friend.
Too often people associate a soul mate with a wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, lover. This is not always the case. Someone who is a friend can be a soul mate. It is two people whose souls have touched and intertwined.
I have known people whose family members are their soul mates, or others who are friends that have never met, but talk to each other a great deal and know so much about each other because their souls connected. It can be friends with people who are married to someone else. Just because someone is a soul mate doesn’t mean there is love/lust situation. It transcends love. Becomes something more.
No amount of arguments or upset can keep soul mates apart. When you have found yours, feel blessed. Some people can go a lifetime with never finding who their one is, or meeting them and not stopping to get to know each other.
Maybe that moment of “love at first sight” is not that, but more souls connecting across a room and interlocking into place.
You got that right!!!
A beautiful reflection on the soul mate and the words empowers in finding this inner mate. Superb Al!
Thank you very much Vishal. I was nervous about sharing this at first
I never thought about that, but it’s so true! Thanks, Alastair.
Thank you, Alejandro. I’m not an expert in soul mates, but I do believe that too many people see their partners as a soul mate because they love them. They are different parts of the psyche, the emotions, that are used. Love is governed by the heart -sometimes with the head screaming haha. The soul is not governed. It exists.
Wow! “The soul is not governed. It exists.” That’s so true. Copyright that, if you can, Alastair.
Thank you. 🙂
[ Smiles ] Wow, Deep! And, I do mean that in a good way!
Thanks very much Renard. I appreciate that
[ Smiles ] You are most welcome, Al.
Sometimes I think I have found my soulmate in a guy, but have been wrong. Actually, my soulmate is my best girlfriend of 40 years
Having had a soulmate for 40 years is amazing. Even if you stop talking to them for a year, two, four or ten, they are still there and they are still connected.
Yes, we two can go weeks without speaking and I swear we pick up on the last sentence spoken. lol
That is fantastic Terry. It’s how it is supposed to be. Almost two parts of one whole.
