Have You Ever Been In Love?

Have you ever been in love,
Did the angels sing for you?
You could tread fire, but that heavenly choir
Is all you'd answer to

Have you ever been in love,
Did you sigh, then kneel and pray
That every kiss would feel like this
And tomorrow would be like today?

Have you ever been in love,
Were you sure this love was the one,
Only to get near and have it disappear
Like a snowflake in the sun?

Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever loved too much?
Like orbs of light floating in the night,
You reach out, but there's nothing to touch

Have you ever been in love,
Have you yet to feel the sting
Of good-bye's refrain, and the awful pain
That only love can bring?

Have you ever been in love?
Do you know that someday you'll weep?
A perfect love, though blessed from above,
Is impossible to keep!

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
