My Catalyst

My Catalyst

Drawn together, as two like souls
Each suffering our own pains
Each just starting to carve our own path 
In the uncertain journey of life

Fate and her forces that be 
Brought us together
Broken hearts, Broken dreams
Afflictions and Addictions

We met head on
We bonded and soothed each others hurts
We gave each other support and strength
We became lovers and friends

Yet we were to each other the catalyst
We had to say good bye, to grow
But a bond of trust had been created
Though our time was brief, 
  our love and respect for one another was real.

So here Fate finds you to me once again
After so many years and a thousand miles
And I smile to know that our story will continue
My Catalyst, 
  My Friend

True friends understand each others needs and make those paramount. It sounds like you were the truest of friends.
Beautiful words Lisa.

I don't like to talk much about such things, feeling that too many words can sully such deep subjects, but I do believe it really does happen this way. There are people who touch our lives so profoundly as to start a fire--as if we become more complete for having met them.

..a fine dedication to such a person )

Sorry Lisa but DoRoThY's leading me astray here.

I thought matches were made by experts with fire and Guy Fawkes knowledge? The Devil Industrial Estate make a top-quality brand called 'Lucifers'. If you've been particularly naughty they toss in a packet gratis. My cupboard is overflowing. Better than Chinese fizzers. Strike them and they don't even spark up.

Sorry Lisa - it's all DoRoThY's fault ?

The bean and I have a love-love relationship. A match made in heaven...?

I thought matches were made in a factory? ?

I do like this Lisa.

Graham - Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor might think love/hate relationships were the best kind. Each to his own I guess........

Philipos - interesting comments. Takes two to tear a relationship apart....You, and I, have a relationship with our computers, correction, our readers. Emotions can be 'rattled' with these distance relationships.

Personally, I prefer coffee......?

Relationships eh! Could tear you in half if you let them. Personally I am happy with a cup of tea and beavering away at the screen - helps to get it all out there in the open. Enjoyed the sentiments in your poem though. Quite profound. ?
