    FAMILIAR SOUL a poem by Carla Forrester Curts
    I looked in your eyes, I’ve seen them before
    the eyes of a comrade that dies at my side in war.
    The eyes of a babe I held to my breast
    that wrenched my heart when I laid you to rest.

    Weren’t you the one who shared my childhood play
    that I cried so hard for when they took me away?
    And wasn’t it you I laughed with in the springtime rain
    as we rode our horses across the wide open plain.

    And didn’t we once when the earth was wild
    stand in awe at the miracle of our newborn child?
    And didn’t we hold hands and face the sword
    and give our lives in the name of the Lord?

    I’ve known you before, I couldn’t be wrong
    many times together we’ve sang life’s song.
    Many times we’ve laughed, many times we’ve cried
    and yes, more than once together we’ve died.

    When I look in your eyes don’t I see
    a spirit so familiar to me?
    Didn’t we dance together across the sky,
    grabbing at clouds as they went dashing by.
    And didn’t we merge together and as one
    send forth a light as beautiful as the setting sun?

    I have looked in so many eyes to see
    if I could find a soul so familiar to me.
    The moment I looked in your eyes I knew.
    and crawled inside and wrapped myself in you.
