All but a broken promise .....poem

Is the only true love that love in the eye's
of your own child
or in the smile of your dog
or that of the morning sun?

Is the only forever in the aqua
blue of an oceans tide
or the silver tints of sun
in these evening clouds?

Is the only touch in the handshake of
a fallen loved on
or in the soft earth when you
fall from grace?

Is the only understanding that which
festers from within
and burns the flesh the heart
the soul all at once ?

Is the only companionship that of one
one man and himself
if he's lucky enough to know these answers ?
