    Captivated

    Yet should I be

    Not knowing how

    My thoughts have been stolen away

    Yet they have

    I no longer concentrate on the mundane

    But a new level

    Of excitement

    Intrigue

    Passion

    Have been ignited

    Never realize I could

    Have

    A

    Friend

    Such as you

    Who could relate

    Connect

    With one such as I

    I never thought

    That one’s soul

    Could be tied

    To another

    Where there was no intimacy

    But I find that my soul has been tied

    To yours

    My close friend

    It seems if I knew you forever

    We have been knitted together

    Yes there are others in our lives

    That we are tied to

    And that’s fine

    Because I now know what

    A true soul tie is

    It’s when you care for someone

    Deeply

    To the point

    Where you are concerned

    About their well being

    And you avail yourself to them no matter the need

    You pray for them

    You laugh with them

    You cry with them

    Wiping away their tears

    And

    Letting them know that someone

    Loves them

    Yes we are tied together

    This bond that we share

    Is stronger

    Because

    Our friendship is genuine

    Not predicated

    On whims of grandeur

    Or fantasies

    But

    Of a love that is pure

    You occupy a space in my heart

    That is reserved only for you

    Your space

    No one else has access

    Because its where the knot

    That ties us together has been placed

    Oh sure

    In another time

    At another place in our lives

    I would be bowing to serve you

    for you would have definitely been the object

    of my affection

    but destiny is not always cruel

    as some think

    for destiny has yet brought us together

    and yet allowed us to exchange

    a glance

    a soft word

    an exclamation of love

    for this relationship that we share

    so I thank destiny

    for bringing you to me

    for if I can only possess you as my friend

    it’s still worth it all

    and it’s an honor to have my soul tied to yours.

    To have a friend like this, someone who has been seemingly heaven sent, what a blessing.
    These lines in particular, struck me:
    But the whole piece was quite tender and endearing. Always great to read you poet.
