Well, it is brilliant to receive the affirmation that your words resonate, so when I opened the e-mail, I could not believe my eyes. My love poem, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, was awarded the first place in the group category of "If I could travel back in time."
It is not an easy task to write an original love poem, especially one that resonates and tells it as it really is. The problem is that you must open those inner parts of you, where all those heartfelt feelings dwell, often hidden away in a vault safe from the outside world.
Love is something that means different things to different people, but not only that, as it means different things to each of us at different stages of our lives. Experience and time often reveals that what we believed was true love in our teenage years, was more infatuation rather than true love in reality.
However, if we are lucky enough, we meet the person with whom we have a unique connection that is deep, and like no other love that we have experienced. People often refer to this significant person, as a 'soul mate'. They unwittingly and effortlessly connect with our soul on a deep level like never before. It is then when we reflect, we realise that those relationships we had before, were less meaningful than we once believed.
The human heart instinctively seeks love throughout our life, and such is the need for this satisfaction, that we convince ourselves that we have found the one. It is after all no fun to see everyone around you paired up, or settling down. Often, the truth is far from what you imagine, and they too have succumb these feelings.
However, when you meet that person who is in tune with you, with whom conversation is effortless, with whom you share so much connection, then you are suddenly experiencing LOVE for real.
Magical - This is the relationship type you want in life!!!
The connection you have with someone, with whom your heart, mind, soul and even body connects, is something very special. However, the chances of you meeting this once in a lifetime connection is very rare an opportunity. Many people never meet and make this connection in their lifetime, which is very sad. However, knowing that it does exist, should I hope inspire others to keep looking, as you never know what tricks your causality will employ to make this happen.
I am truly honoured and humbled to have been awarded First Place by the Voices of Lincoln in Virginia (U.S.A.) for this love poem. Sadly, I was not able to attend the competition award event, however I was there in spirit imagining how wonderful the event was going to be. Hopefully, one day I will be able to attend and meet the group in person!
