Skinned Knees
You are part of me
I am part of you...
Every strand of our beings
were meant to be woven together.
We are no longer young,
sometimes when the light is right
I notice tiny lines in your face.
Lines that define a woman
of character
of dignity, of grace.
Where were you?
Where was I
Why could we not have met...
Known each other
before the road forked...
Became strewn with rock-hard word
that tore our souls
allowing love to seep slowly
into the dirt of dispair?
Why were we destined
to travel pot-holed paths
to trip...
skin our hearts, our knees
before the roads joined once again

I wonder if you've heard the song, "We've Saved the Best for Last" ?  this reminds me of that song and how love that finds you later in life is compared to a lovely has the softness and texture of a ripe peach. It makes you feel like all loves before this ...were just for enjoy the real thing....the journey when roads join once again.  I enjoyed this piece immensely! one of my favorites!

From the perspective of someone still young and single, I'm not sure if I should feel sadness or relief at this idea of a path leading me back toward someone I once loved. Hmm... Love that last stanza, especially how you have "our hearts" placed within the title "skin[ned] knees." Emphasizes those words. Very nice stanza.

But timing is everything, maybe you wouldn't have fit like a glove back then like you do right now.  Maybe your life journeys are what bond both of you together.  Beautiful poem Robert!

THis was how I felt about him as well ...
But I suppose it just was not meant to be??
This blured my eyes this morning.....

You are part of me

I am part of you...
