I'll probably never understand, never comprehend
The mystical circumstance of our meeting, of our friendship
From the beginning the connection always seemed ordained
By some force beyond the boundaries of my understanding.

The mystical circumstance of our meeting, of our friendship
It continues to puzzle and amaze through the years
By some force beyond the boundaries of my understanding
We proceed along the path centuries old.

It continues to puzzle and amaze through the years
This connection of body and soul so unexplainable
We proceed along the path centuries old
To the possibilities of a perpetual friendship.

This connection of body and soul so unexplainable
The relationship that exists to the sister of my soul
To the possibilities of a perpetual friendship
That commenced in a land and time so faraway.

The relationship that exists to the sister of my soul
From the beginning the connection always seemed ordained
That commenced in a land and time so faraway
I'll probably never understand, never comprehend.

As the title states this piece was written for and to the sister of my soul. I hope that she enjoys it.
This piece is closely related to a collaboration work posted at :iconmutualendeavers: [link]

Written in the pantoum style.

The pantoum consists of a series of quatrains rhyming ABAB in which the second and fourth lines of a quatrain recur as the first and third lines in the succeeding quatrain; each quatrain introduces a new second rhyme as BCBC, CDCD. The first line of the series recurs as the last line of the closing quatrain, and third line of the poem recurs as the second line of the closing quatrain, rhyming ZAZA.

The design is simple:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2)
Line 6
Line 7 (repeat of line 4)
Line 8

Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanza then repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.

Last stanza:

Line 2 of previous stanza
Line 3 of first stanza
Line 4 of previous stanza
Line 1 of first stanza
