"Once when our hearts were singing...
I was with you."
"Before time began I was with you
as we watched the falling stars.
We knew we'd have to wait then
for time fully to be ours.
And when on earth I met you
our time truly not begun...
ensured I'd not forget you
till the Final Battle won."
Behind the writing of
I considered the word "many" or "most"
but truthfully "all" of Shoo's poems came
from a place deep inside of me.
I found myself saying during writing
that a writing came "up" instead
of saying "I wrote a poem."
This is very true of
the poem "Falling Stars".
Did I remember from a place
deep inside of me a
time with Shoo before earth?
Was...is Shoo my kindred spirit?
Did I know him...
When I read the words of this poem,
The song "Fallen Embers", sung by Enya
has always reminded me of Kindred Spirits.
