Edge Of The Crossroad
by JJ  Morell

Many times during the day I think of you 
and wonder where you are and what you are doing.
I picture you in my mind's far-reaching eye 
and project us to a place 
where time, the winds and the seas submit to our every command; 
a place where the rays of the sun stretch from the horizon 
to meet our entwined souls, wrapped together, on a distant shore.

I reach for this vision of happiness 
and grasp heaven, if just for a moment,
before slipping sadly back 
to the harsh reality that is the world 
-an empty void that surrounds me daily.
Tossed about in a tempest of loneliness, 
I seek the comforting warmth your beautiful soul brings to mine.

Since before the beginning of time, 
a predestined collision has waited 
for you and I to reach this majestic crossroad in our lives.  
Where we travel from here is yet unknown.  
For now, I think I shall stay at the edge of the crossroad, 
enjoy your vibrance and warmth, and not worry about the path before me.
