In His Own Words

About him

Try as I might to describe myself - I failed. It all sounded so self righteous!
Then I remembered this poem - which I love. It probably describes the sort of individual I think I am - better than anything I could ever write. And for those of you who 'get it' then perhaps we have an understanding or even a beginning?

"You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow"

Marriage - Kahil Gibran

About his ideal match

I am an adventurer, a traveller, a dreamer, a writer and a poet (that's the Irish in me!). In a romantic relationship I look for a 'soulmate' (discussion required!) and an individual I can respect and relate to, but especially one who can return a mutual love, with plenty of humour, warmth and affirmation.
I seek - so far with difficulty but determination (or am I confusing this with stubbornness?) - a genuine and authentic relationship. I am, I have been told, an original Romantic - one, who I believe, is caring, passionate and loyal. But more importantly, I - (at last thank the Good Lord!) - know what I need and what I can offer, from and to this woman.
I want this woman who relishes in being herself and who is now confident, and brave enough to want, perhaps one last adventure. I want and need my 'best friend' and a lover. Am I asking too much?
Are you she?
