Facets

Rating: 4.8

I have seen the facets of love,
From a child to the breasts of a mother
A dying soldiers last words to his wife,
A year later, she marries another
Yet, I believe in a love at first sight
Some insist, nothing's so simple
Others choose to cry in the night,
Thinking love an impossible riddle
Scarred are those by the brand of a chance,
Hardened with the cold of a shoulder

Blessed are those who try it again

Excellent poem, Bill, and fantastic picture! I have five poems, but they are not activated yet. Why does it take so long for a new poet? Some of them were posted three days ago!

Only one who accepts love's difficulties can truly pay tribute to love. As you say, love is a blessing if only we dare to try again.
