You and Me

Published by Susan on 08/09/2003 (3611 reads)
I'm part of people I have known...

I'm part of people I have known
       And they are part of me;
The seeds of thought that I have sown
       In other minds I see.
There's something of me in the throne
       And in the gallows tree.

There's something of me in each one
       With whom I work and play,
For islanded there can be none
       In this dynamic day;
And meshed with me perchance may be
       A leper in Cathay.

There's me in you and you in me,
       For deeply in us delves
Such common thought that never we
       Can call ourselves ourselves.
In coils of universal fate
       No man is isolate.

For you and I are History,
       The all that ever was;
And woven in the tapestry
       Of everlasting laws,
Persist will we in Time to be,
       Forever you and me.
