Replacing Love for One with Love for All
The Universe Feels all Emotions, Like Love
Remembering that lost love
An Old Man Replaces Love for One with Love for All
He still has illusions, plans and schemes -
hope never dies in man it seems.
He still salutes each sunshot day,
and waits for joy to come his way.
He'll still chase rainbows to the end;
he's still loyal to a friend.
He likes a laugh, though now they're few.
He sits and thinks a lot of you.
He loved too many; loved and lost.
It's impossible to count the cost.
Now a scarred and grizzled bear.
with yellowed teeth and graying hair.
So when he leaves us, who will say?
"It's a shame he had to go this way"
There was never much inside his purse,
but he truly loved this universe.
