Once upon a time came along my destiny And empty soul who befriended me Was this serendipity? My heart fell in love for all eternity My soul complete When I turned around The time has gone Losing touch was just too much Fell to my knees and began to weep True love lost my soul deplete Many years have passed The memory never lapsed The image of your face brought me to this place Walking down the street still feeling the need for us to meet To my surprise like a shooting star I saw her eyes And knew it was her My heart started to beat Uncontrollably Again we meet My true Serendipity Copyright © 2009 Steven Cetta All Rights Reserved Image Credit : CoolText.com inertia4, Serendipity, Poem, inertia4poetry

that was very lovely! the meet, the loss and the meet again. I hope this doesnt end up like that one song, "meet the man of my dreams, then meet his beautiful wife..."

This is partly true really. I knew a woman years ago, we both liked each other. But we were both with other people. She went on with her life and I did mine. We lost touch. Finally, we met again. This time we weren't with other people so we hooked up and have been together ever since.

@inertia4 I know someone like that, after his wife passed he met his Highschool love, (widowed) and they have been together ever since!

@Jessicalynnt Well, no one in my story was widowed. But it happened and I am happy about it. I just wish sometimes I could turn the hands of time back and start over with her.

The man of my dreams? No, it is the woman of my dreams. But that's okay. I understand what you meant. It is amazing how serendipity played a role in my life.

You could. All you need to do is look deep within yourself. I know you have it there. And don't stress anything. You have to remain relaxed. And also, inspiration. You need to be inspired from something. Maybe a song or a movie or a book. Or just life itself.

@sugartoes Why? You don't think you have the ability to write something great? I don't believe you think that way. I think we all have something inside ourselves.

Thank you. And it is about reality. This really happened to me. The woman I am with I knew before my wife at the time. And that's the woman i should have been with from back then. But there was a situation where I couldn't cross a line of respect. Maybe I should have.

@inertia4 That's the one thing I understand. Life happens. There was a man who I really liked when I was younger and he reciprocated. I felt "safe" and loved with him. I found out he had been looking for me over the years from my cousin. Once I was separated she gave him my information. We talk all the time and I have seen him several times, unfortunately I think we live too far apart and we are still in two different places in life.

@mommaj That's sad. Too bad you two couldn't have hooked up back then. I wish that I did in the 80's. Wow, did I say the 80's. That sounds like a lifetime ago. LOL. Hey Now!!! Now I know how my parents must have felt back then.

Very nice poem @inertia4! Serendipity is definitely something worth writing about and experiencing. I have a poem tucked away somewhere by the same title, but from quite a different perspective and not as well-written as the one that you have presented! Well done!

Thank you very much for this comment. I would love to read your poem. You should dig it out and post it up here. Serendipity is a wonderfully strange thing.

@ataboy You're welcome. I would like to read your poetry. Some songs are strange with lyrics. But most aren't.

As they say, Love is so much sweeter the second time around.

It is. But it is also unfair when it should have been from the beginning. But I am happy that we met up again and things are as they should be now.

@inertia4 Cherish the moment and work on the future, for you to be always together. Pardon the cliches. I'm on a roll.

@Beatburn I don't mind the cliches. I am looking toward the future with her. We are planning on losing weight this year and getting ourselves healthy. That is a good thing.

Life has a funny way of changing on a daily basis. But I can tell you that Serendipity is real. I wish things were different all these years. But better late than never. Thank you.
