Kindred Spirits - Poem by Steven Rhoads

Our eyes met when we looked beyond the metal cage
A glance of uncertainty and of unknowing fear
Sitting side by side a bond was forged on life's stage
Injected into my heart you were one I held so dear
As time goes on our union turned to the iron strong
Two lost souls were slowly melding into one
This holding divide wont keep us apart for long
Until we both rose to greet eternity in the rising sun

And in my heart you forever beat in synchronization
Those empty islands have formed one proud nation
Love fed fire that defied with white hot determination
That nothing would keep us apart from one another

We understand without words even being spoken
Like the blowing winds have given us this token
And no one will take it away, we'll be together in the coming days
We entwined our souls and found the perfect match
Locked behind closed doors, we were the key to the others latch
And no one will keep us apart, we are kindred spirits at heart

When time comes to call you home forever
I will watch crimson tears fall from my stopping heart
Let no angel wings of the whitest of all feathers
Keep this love for you from where you now depart
And in your memory I will etch into my skin
The ink of immortalizing for your memory to remain
No matter what will be, you're here with me within
Through the brightest sunshine and pouring rain

When my bones turn to dust and breath expires
I will find a way with our love's burning fire
Wait for me at the fence because you I wont forget
I will come to see you again, but for now... not yet
