To Love Again


Love is like a mountain pathway
With it's many dips and bends
And the urge to scale this mountain
Never, ever really ends.

Once I met a modest maiden
And she lit some inner fire,
Lifting me to near nirvana;
Love, oh love, such sweet desire.

All to soon she left, departed
From my life of grateful bliss,
Took away those wondrous moments;
We can't deny death's final kiss.

Could I, should I seek another?
Yes, and once again I sup
Life's sweet nectars and the taste
Of chocolates in my coffee cup.

Love is like a mountain pathway,
To it's height we should aspire,
As we stroll along this byway.
Love, oh love, such sweet desire.

1998
