ALBERTO MAGSUCI

Two Souls Meet


My heart is pounding
its beat irregular
we’re on the way to
the airport to pick up
a small boy with his mother.

there he is, I call out his name
his eyes round with wonder
he turns his back and snuggles
in his mother’s lap

once again, our eyes meet
I sense deep inside
that he recognizes me
as a kindred soul

I pick him up, his head rests on my shoulder
at that moment I know, from the throbbing of  my heart
that I have not made a mistake
he is indeed destined to be my son

the cord of love binds us together

two souls become as one.
