The Bond

The bond that holds two people together is not always a strand of silk,

But a length of rope, rough and course…

Whatever the bond, it is neither stronger nor weaker than

The two people who would have it so…

As long as they choose to travel the same road,

Neither their fortunes nor their misfortunes can be divided…

If one laughs, they both laugh, if one cries, they both cry,

If one lives, they both live, if one dies, they both die…

If one separates his or her needs as more important than the other,

Then they are not together…

And while one should not stand in the shadow of the other,

Neither should seek the sun without the other…

For the bond to work, both must be together in all things…

When two people entrust one another with their inner most feelings,

Their hearts and their lives, the bond between them strengthens

And surrounds them until each becomes a part of the other…

This closeness cannot be measured by time, words or circumstance.

It is a wholeness of the soul, a silence and a higher form of intimacy.
