Poem: Destiny by Edwin Arnold


Somewhere there waiteth

in this world of ours

For one lone soul another lonely soul

Each choosing each through all the weary hours

And meeting strangely at one sudden goal

Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers

Into one beautiful and perfect whole;

And life's long night is ended, and the way

Lies open onward to eternal day.

by Edwin Arnold (poet)

***with special thanks to my radio hero, Don Jackson, of CHFI FM 98.1, who hosted his Canada-wide show "Lovers & Other Strangers" from 1990 to 2010. He read this poem on one of his shows. I was a devoted listener who spent many weeknights curled up by the radio in my room, taking notes on Don's wonderful show. He featured magazine articles, quotes and poetry about relationships and also played the most beautiful love songs. Don will be sadly missed forever. Jan 12-1954 to July 12 -2020. Thank you for all the memories, Don***
