This time we are inspired by an incident in Paolo Coelho's novel, Aleph.
In the Aleph, all things are one, and all of the past, present and future are contained.
in our past lives
were we friends or lovers
now we meet again
i've always loved you
since the moment i was born
and perhaps before
our lives intertwined
spanning across space and time
choice or destiny
now we are old
when we say our last good-bye
know we'll meet again
There are those whose lives are meant to be entwined,
Lovers thrust together by the force of destiny,
When choice and fate converge, that they may be
Connected at the soul, the heart, the mind.
Within their closed circumference one can find
Two curves in perfect fit -- his yang, her yin,
That in each cycle once again begin
To cluster into love's sweet spiral bind.
But consider -- if in the vast span of infinity
One of them becomes displaced in small degree;
Is born a decade late, perhaps is sent
To the farthest corner of the continent --
The distant echo of an unfelt touch, an unseen face.
Who will be the one who comes to take his place?
