Thoughtful?

by graypoet

walk in rain

I envy those that can clear their mind
Leaving thoughts of the day behind
Some don’t even seem to think at all
In the moment, no past they recall.

Then there are those living for today
Past or future, they’ve little to say
Living a moment, paycheck or beer
They only see what is now, right here.

The passionate are the ones pondering
Mind constantly alive, always wandering
Eyes open or closed, they continue to see
Events of the past as well as what’s to be.

A few there are the go yet a step beyond
Like a connection to others they respond
Feelings, emotions, desires they can feel
As if in the same skin, they feel it so real.

For one such as this the mind never stops
As they try, the connection seldom drops
Constantly receiving an emotional update
Could it be they are really your soul mate.
