This poem is a poem about that special person that comes along so rarely. The person you call a soulmate to which you have a connection that words fail to explain. An immediate mutual bond.

I wrote this to my Best Friend and kindred spirit, Maria. as a gift for her birthday because I have always preferred writing my own words from my heart to buying a card at a store.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

To My Kindred Spirit
We share secrets, we laugh and even cry,

We have so much in common,

Concerns, likes and dislikes.

Ours is a relationship joined by

Tender velvet chains that link our

similar dreams of life and love.

A gentle intuition guides us in our

individual struggles to succeed

at the things we pursue, to stand

out from the crowd.

In you I have found so much of myself,

Including many of the same

Insecurities and philosophies.

Complete inner-peace and happiness,

These are the things I wish for you,

in the present and in the future

because you are my kindred spirit.

    As a published author of poetry I appreciate the writings of other talented writers, also this is a special poem due to your name. "My Kindred Spirit" is Michael Todd. He is my first an only true male friend we have known each other all most six years. I am 52 and Todd is 30. Thank you for the opportunity to view you work and send it to my friend.
