The Gain Of Loss

Rating: 2.5
Hardest of Lifes lessons is loss,
In which having becomes without,
When complete changes to shatters,
That what was full is, just an emptiness,

And guided becomes lost.
Security of knowing, fades to a memory,
Images of Love, become dreams,
Security of touch, a sensation ebbed away,

And Loneliness becomes company.
When the weakened Heart, strengthens,
tired from the weariness, of loss,
Growing, of the last Love,

To become the strength,
Of the next.
Lesson learned, is not to Love less,
With Loss,

lesson is, to learn to Love Grander,
With Gain.

Hello Darrel, Your poem, The Gain Of Loss is on my site, Spiritual Things Matter that was forwarded to me during a most painful time in my life. I am writing a book and I wanted to see if I could have your permission to include this poem in my book. I also wrote a post that I entitled The Gain Of Loss before someone made me aware of your poem. I really would like to include it in my book since it is so fitting and so beautiful. I have a new e-mail Thank you, Darrel. And please let me know. Best regards, Viola
