Wanting


What does love do
When love goes away
And that lovestill cares.

The heart aches still,
Longing, caring feeling.
A bough blowing in the wind
Then breaking with a crack.

Once two swans entwined
On a glassy twinkling lake
Under a harvest moon.

Now the harvest has been
Gathered by the grim reapers
Sickle, one taken one left.

Two loves joined at the hip
Now love abandoned
Love alone.
