We, Who Have Lost
We, Who Have Lost
By Tony DeLorger © 2014
For all those who have lost in love,
for the sadness, grief and pain,
that can never be forgotten, nor lost in time,
we all share this burden of humanity,
this human heart and soul,
with all its potential in bliss and devastation,
all its excruciating angst and yearning,
when whom we love is torn from us,
in death, in rejection, in circumstance,
and a part of us dies, fades from life,
and we in a desert of pain, search for sustenance,
something to embrace in our hour of need and struggle,
some defining perspective to give us hope,
to alleviate this torturous plight of love and loss.
There is no answer to pain, just how we perceive it,
and in our desolation and suffering we must hold onto something,
and that one saving grace is the love itself,
love that has graced our lives with joy and contentment,
experiences of pleasured life and harmony,
and with these thoughts we hold onto hope,
knowing that in the end love is worth its ending,
memories cannot be taken from us,
and that love will always warm our hearts,
justify its beautiful course, even after loss,
and we are saved by the very ideal that tore us down,
the very core of our pain, our only salvation,
and if we can but see this perspective,
love will live on, and so shall we.
