I Cannot Die From Love... - Poem by David Lessard

I cannot die from love,
the pain would be too great;
it's not in my plans,
to enter thru that gate.

I need the stuff of love,
to keep an even keel;
to lose it would be heartbreak,
and that's no way to feel.

And so, I'll stay with love,
all thru the thick and thin;
never will I reject her,
it would be too much a sin!

Too many loves are lost,
thru lack of much desires;
for lack of much delight,
that douses many fires.

I cannot die from love,
for then I'd be alone;
it's not right for any man,
this state I don't condone!

    Well said, David. We may die from lack of love, but never because of it. Love is what gives us life. Without it, we may get by, but that's not living. Great poem. (Report) Reply
