The prompt is to write about What does soul mate mean to you? for the Sunday Writing Prompt on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.
He calls me his pearl, something extraordinarily beautiful to him.
Before him, I hadn’t been viewed as beautiful, not even by me.
So, each day, I remember to love him as fully as possible,
For I couldn’t imagine life without the look of love in his eyes.
I still stand in awe that he chose me from thousands of choices,
A woman of a different race, social class, upbringing, and culture.
That he could look past my skin color and see his future astounds me.
So being his soul mate is wonderful, and I thank God for our love and life.
