A Matter Of Fate

by Joan Serratelli

It was merely
a matter of fate
that they met
two people
from two different worlds
found each other
and fell
so deeply in love

It should never
have happened
two people so different
found each other
and their lives
would never
be the same

It became a connection
so strong
and even though
they would never
be together
the love grew
stronger over the years

It would last
their lives
and became on
It could never
be broken
It would just grow

And when all
was said and done
it was that love
without reason
that saved them

They would go
to their graves
never meeting
but that was
not what mattered
What mattered was
the bond-the silence
that became them
their love
