Losing Track Of The Heart (Revised) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Sopranos and tenors singing ‘Together Forever' as
love everlasting made me realise - only love based
on friendship and mutual respect lasts - the short-
lived excitement of romance with its mystery to be
deciphered mostly ends in disappointment

A sense of humour keeps love alive, love does not
feast by itself as claimed by those infatuated with
fantasy; love starts as a small plant requiring water
and care, it cannot bloom and bear fruit left to itself,
love without the hard work withers and dies

It's not Prince Charming's arrival custom-made for
Cinderella, waltzing into a life with love's allure
solving problems - ready for casino games of life;
excitement's spark needs a real fire with work - the
adding of sticks and dry twigs, nurturing

A strong fire of love warms those tossed in life's
storms - love does not mean leaving this earth to
live in a perfect universe, but going on every trip
together, cooperating to keep the ship afloat - such
love grows stronger when floundering

In doldrums of failure and disillusionment; love
means communication - losing track of the heart
in which the spark started means the fire dies…
