Destiny--By Graça Costa--Portugal


I knew we were bound
long before we met.
Deep inside I felt your love
as a feather caressing my soul
and your voice whispering
smoothly in my skin
an unwritten song
floating in time
waiting for our embrace.

Fate put you in my path
in the most unexpected way
when days were grey
and nights were stormy.
You came and I was frightened.
Still, I've let you in...
bath myself in your scent
and allow sparkles of happiness
to enlighten the room.

Love flew like tides in summer nights
and I … I surrender to your smile.

  3. Thanks, Graça, "an unwritten song floating in time" is a delightful sound in my imagination, I suspect there is another poem hiding in that phrase...
