So Many Words Of Love Have Already Been Written

So many words of love have already been written
Why should my poem for you be anything new?

It is true I loved you very much
And for years was deluded in the joyful thought that you loved me
I wrote of course words of love to you
But they are lost like most of what I have written-

Do I still love you now
So many years after we truly loved?

I loved you with the total obsessive love of one for whom the happiness of the other is the only meaning of the world-

Now I am old and far from even true remembrance of the love
that once was my life
And where you are in your soul I sadly do not truly know.
