Honourable Mention, University of Waterloo Library Love Week 2021 Writing Contest (What’s Your Love Story? Category: Poetry)

Inspired by Robin Hobb’s The Realm of the Elderlings

So many lives, so many souls
Coming, going, flowing with time
Ebbing, into, out of, life’s folds
A mark left on heart of mine

Each soul carved out a place
A chamber within which it lived
So even beyond time and space
My heart takes what souls had give’d

When fun and laughter reach their ends
And the heart is again alone
Thoughts again return to friends
Threads of fate are yet to be sewn

And even if these threads never again meet
They’ve made my life’s tapestry forever sweet
