Soulmates

May 31, 2012
Reading old emails and I found something.
The Partner and I were discussing soulmates and he quoted some writers on the subject.


This was his favorite


“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise….When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.”  -Richard Bach


This was mine:

I have been here before, but when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell, the sighing sound, the lights around the shore.
You have been mine before – How long ago I may not know:
But just when at that swallow’s soar, your neck turned so,
Some veil did fall, – I knew it all of yore.” – Dante Gabriel Rosetti

At the time this moved something so deep inside me, glad to say it still does. Perfection. Funny we weren’t dating yet then. (this can be argued but…)

“You have been mine before – How long ago I may not know”

Profound.

I don’t think we all have only one soulmate by the way. 
Anyway, sigh 🙂 Love is good and beautiful and special.
Love always,
Sabirah

    “Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life”
