Love Reclaimed - Poem by Ray Lucero

If life were easy to let the world fall away
If it possible to toss all aside without delay
To let go of years and rekindle love’s flame
To once again our dormant love proclaim
I’d not hesitate nor cast a glance behind
To embrace the love that was once mine
Alas, duty holds us like rooted trees
To family/friends from which we cannot flee
Committed to God to make our choices wise
We’re not free as yet, to break such weighty ties
The world shall not fall easily away
Yet, with passing time there comes a day
I’ll be with you and you with me
When both of us have been set free


(This poem was written by a very dear friend)
