Life With Love And Tragedy - Poem by Danny Speicher

Life with love and tragedy, they each flow
In the inner sanctums that all men know
Each lead to another, and another
Paths lead to one then, soon, to the other

God, at times, weeps above… We weep below
As each tragedy lines up in a row
Loss uniting each sister and brother
Wetting eyes of each father and mother

Oh, had I only known this long ago
When love piled high like fresh-fallen snow
I might not have so drawn to another
And, under that same love, gasp and smother

But, were I to have to choose once again
In earnest I’d choose love, despite the pain

((September 11th,2015))

Topic(s) of this poem: god, love, love lost, pain, paths, unity

    Outstanding Sonnet.............I liked it, to quote the lines I liked the most:
    But, were I to have to choose once again
    In earnest I’d choose love, despite the pain.........
