The Price of Grand Love (poem)

Excuse me if my answer would be no

To live this dream of happiness once more

Entwined with you yet so much left to know

About the passions hidden at that shore


So easy it would be this jest of yes

As if a second part would scarce dilute

A tale of love in its own time to bless

The hearts of lovers held so resolute


And let’s not be so callous to cast off

The price in pain for all that we went through

The wrinkles on our faces fain to scoff

At eyes who paid a share in seas of dew


We lived a life that others dare dream of

And we must pay the price for one such love

Nice. There is a price to pay whether love succeeds or fails.
