Better To Have Loved You At All - Poem by Danielle Ward

That I have seen rather than missed,
That I have heard rather than ignored,
That I have tasted rather than avoided,
That I have smelt rather than shunned.

That I have ran rather than walked,
That I have sighed rather than breathed,
That I have wept rather than watched,
That I have feared rather than fled.

That I have touched rather than dismissed,
That I have longed rather than rejected,
That I have despaired rather than abandoned,
That I have dreamt rather than forgotten.

Better to have known you at all.
Better to I have loved you at all.
