True love comes but once

In our lifetime 

It’s a gift

Not be trifled with

To have loved-

Is amazing 

To have lost,

Quite humbling 

But stop and think

Look on the inside

Don’t you see

An ocean of love?

Don’t you see

A beating heart-

A Paragon of virtue?

Love so much

So much more to give

There are others

Just like you

Searching for 

Lovers anew

Oceans of love

In overflow 

Hearts open wide

Letting in 

The ocean’s tide

Dare to be drowned 

Allow yourself 

To be swooned

Far better this


To be
