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.

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
