Love After Love - Poem by Derek Walcott

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Love Poems

  1. Love, What Is Love

    LOVE - what is love? A great and aching heart; Wrung hands; and silence; and a long despair. Life - what is life? Upon a moorland bare To see love coming and see love depart.

  2. I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

    I do not love you except because I love you; I go from loving to not loving you, From waiting to not waiting for you My heart moves from cold to fire. I love you only because it's you the one I love; I hate you deeply, and hating you Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you Is that I do not see you but love you blindly. Maybe January light will consume My heart with its cruel Ray, stealing my key to true calm. In this part of the story I am the one who Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you, Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

  3. Love Love Love

    Oh it's so easy to say - 'Give what you think you lack - You feel unloved? Then give love, and love, and love...'... On the other hand - Do you have any better advice?

  4. Lost Love (Love Love Love Love Love Love)

    Void, empty, hollow inside My dreams have fled, my hopes have died Existence has no reason Life's just passing with each season She was my life, my hope, my love All is gone, passed by thereof The hurt is such no one should bear What's to life, why should I care? I weep all night for my love gone My heart is sick, for death I long Mine eyes well tears for love that's lost I'll mourn always for the great cost But in each day Lord give me hope Strengthen me so I may cope Grant me wisdom to help me see Thy great way and not just me. love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love
