What is the connection a superlative force

Holding us together no thought of divorce

Carries us through fire and rain

Offers us sunlight when we’re in pain


Sharing our essence giving us smiles

Listening profoundly for miles upon miles

Joining our laughter bearing our fears

Revealing our scars letting go of tears


Speaking our dreams and what makes us crazy

Losing connection when we get lazy

Counting the years the connection does span

We arrived here without much of a plan


What draws us to others what’s the source of attraction

What fosters connection and gives friendship traction

What keeps us engaged and asking for more

What is the glue that makes us secure


Gemutlich is present the feelings are warm

You trust the engagement from which new life is born

This body that rises out of the connection

Creates in your soul a whole new dimension


Who are the people in your life with whom you share this kind of connection?

Have you acknowledged and thanked them lately?

If something were to happen to either one of you would you feel bad that you had not expressed a sense of gratitude?

By when will you share?
