The everlasting bond
It was not there in shared experiences,
We grew up years apart.
It was not there in similar places,
We lived miles apart.
I didn’t find it in journeys together,
We were not birds of similar feather.
I didn’t find it in songs we heard,
Neither in the stories shared.
Then I stopped looking for it,
And found it in my heart.
There was no reason for our bond,
Maybe that’s why it is so strong.
