To Love Again - Poem by Joseph Anderson

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


Poet's Notes about The Poem

After losing my wife to cancer in 1982 I decided to
give love another chance and remarried in 1986. It
has worked out beautifully
