! ! Love And Loss And Love Again - A Poem For Jenny And Her Friends - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Loss can be good for us,
researchers say (Nolen-Hoeksema
and Davis,2002) – it’s called
Post-Traumatic Growth…

When we ‘lose’ someone
we seldom see these days,
yet always love, we are in some strangely beautiful way
the gainers –

lose someone who, caught a glimpse of
down a school corridor, is like
a mirror in which you’ll see reflected
yourself as nothing but pure love…

and when you meet her then, it’s just as if
you meet love – and a modesty almost uncertain:
as if she had been bestowed the awesome gift
of a part of sun and sunlight, and told,
bestow this wisely…

warmth, and light, and beautiful humility –
even your great talent – I recall
a rare and radiant press review
of a concert in the Purcell Room
where you improvised on, was it, Ravel..?

and when asked why you never built
upon that boost, you said with typical
serious thought, well people don’t seem
to be interested in that sort of thing…

so, the occasional concert; and another
undeveloped gift, for bringing together in opera
people who would never have dared
to seek the gift of singing in themselves…

so, we the gainers in this sad yet joyful way:
we saw you just occasionally; now,
as often as we remember you,
you’re here again, as love.. just, love…

my only sadness, Jennifer,
is that one day, when on your face
(never tell a lady to her face
about her face – yet I insult you
by saying that of you…)

on your face I saw the look
of a little girl who’d done her very best,
yet feared retribution…what demon,
small or large, had you to deal with in yourself?

I regretted then, not speaking out
and asking you about that; yet
you, with your great talent to bring love
were better equipped than I; too wise,
I think, not to know yourself…

for what you brought in your sweet nature –
taking work where it would offer,
playing the piano for a celebrated
but also modest ballet teacher,
playing a white grand piano next to a fern
in Heathrow’s nerve-strained hall…

what you brought was the essence of
that Indian ‘Perfect Prayer’ which so many speak
but not all live out: that nothing can be ‘taken’,
for the remainder is always perfect…

so we will mourn, or celebrate, dear Jenny:
we who were so fortunate,
and who shall remain blessed for ever
that you have lived on earth..

‘sweet are the uses of adversity’ – for
there’s music in our souls


[Jennifer Bowring Pearce, >2007]

Love Poems

  1. 07. Love, What Is Love?

    love, oh what is love? flowers in so many shapes and hues giving sweetness to butterflies and bees in so many shapes and hues in the field, a buzz, a joy, these insects help create another world another paradise, warm colourful flower garden for lovers of the world help spread cheers everywhere with the sweetness the flowers where the flowers are, the butterflies, the bees are where there is love, joy spreads wide as the field just look at the butterflies and the bees how they cheer up the field with their songs and dance

  2. Love Is / Love Is Not.

    LOVE IS Always good mannered, bears up under stress Looks for ways to be kindly, is quick to confess. LOVE IS NOT Ever possessive, nor needs to impress. Not touchy, nor jealous if it seems to get less. LOVE IS Looking to share, and hopes for good things. Knows no limits to taking what life sometimes brings LOVE IS NOT Proud or boastful, it does not feel revoked By injuries suffered, nor is it provoked. LOVE IS Decent, believing, looking for good. Contented, yet happy when misunderstood. It's trusting, and hoping, as love always should. Thus love begets love. It personifies God. Lets hold up the feelings we deem to call Love. Comparing them close in the light of above.

  3. Why Do We Love Love, When Love Seems To Hate Us

    Why do we love love so much when it never did us any good, We love love for the fun of it, or just because we know we could. But the question is, why do love hate us, I always said, ' It's better love than lust.' Love hates us because we never show ownership, We just see each other as friends, we don't even see a relationship. Love doesn't hate us, it's just we abuse it so, Because once love is given to us, we don't want it anymore. We do love love, and love loves us too, Love is just tired of the different ways it's used.

  4. Love Me, Love Me, Love Me

    Love me, love me, love me White says love me Never, Ever, Never My heart say nevermore. White gives peace White gave me pollution White sowed purity White spoiled my chastity. White is superior It made me inferior White is cultured It destroyed my culture. White is all Who said this all You, its only you Not I, never will I. White says love me I say I don't White asks why I wont Because you ruled at my own.
