To Love And To Lose

What good is it to love and to lose, if your love will never be there?
What good is it to love and to lose, if your love you can no longer declare?
What good is it to love with a love that is deeper than ocean or sea?
If the one that you love has been taken away, and mine has been taken from me.

Would better it be if never I'd loved and touched not the sun beams of day?
Would better it be if never I'd loved nor drank in the vast star's display?
Would better it be if never I'd loved and shared not the first rose of spring?
They say that it's best if I loved and I lost, than never our love bells to ring.

Yes, better it was to love yet to lose for love to my life has brought gain.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Having lost someone that was my life, I am familiar with the repetitious grief that this poem simulates. We tend to continually go over and over things that could have been, should have been and never will be. In the end, after years of living through this, we finally realize we must see the good and turn a dark eye to the pain. In so doing, our good memories comfort us.
