Quintessential Love

I am taking part in the A to Z Challenge via my blog Someday Somewhere.

For the letter "Q"  I wrote a poem on my definition of quintessential love which I am sharing here as well.

Come, wake up and love again

For I have lived through the aeons of time with you

We have traversed universes in a multitude of lifetimes

I have loved each beat of your heart, every thought in your mind

I have smiled at every rhythm your soul has orchestrated

And immersed myself in the ecstasy of your every moment

I have seen you in every aspect of my existence

And felt you in the minutest fibre of my being

I have merged my consciousness with yours

And thus bridged the chasm of this vast, endless cosmos

Wherever we are, we reach through thin veils

And blend together into one presence 

Now, and then forever.

~x~

  3. Yes! It's the kind of love I believe in too. The love that is of the soul infinite and eternal, reflective of the very essence of our natures, we all have it, it only needs be awakened.
