The Pain of Love
A poet’s love poem takes
us to the heavens,
with memories of sharing
beauty and joy.
With the skill of an
artist the poet paints,
a word picture of hearts
dreams of futures that
will never end.
Those lonely years,
finally the one that makes my soul sing.
But at times love poems
remind us of what was,
could have been, and the
tragedies of loss.
The pain of love is
written in songs,
“I could have missed the
I'd af had to
miss the dance.”(1)
Yet we want love, to
receive it and to give it,
with the sharing of times
and the pain of the ending.
Eulogies are written into
song for the loss of love.
Yes, the young, the not so
young and the old,
want to be poets writing
our own love poems.
Hoping and praying that
our love poem today,
will not become the words
song writers use for the
pain of love tomorrow.

My favorite flower is the rose.
Just looking at its beauty takes my
You have been my rose through all these
As often as possible I would bring you a

Soon we will part and the tradition will
In its place, I offer you this gift, an
enchanting glass rose,
which will never die, as my love for you
shall never die.
Your gentleness and kindness have
improved on nature.
I thank you for your sweet tender
touches and compassionate human patience.
I will never forget this harsh lesson.
Women must be treated with the same
tender loving care as the rose:
I should have sprinkled you with love
I should have fertilized you with
I should have sprayed you with affection
Kept you in the sunlight, which reflects
your natural colors, more awesome than a rainbow.
The fragrance of your skin made me feel
Your eyes remind me of the delicate
colors of soft petals;
Your smile, the sunlight required for
Your legs, the long, stems;
Your face is that of a breath-taken
flower with all its lovely dramatic features.
This arrangement captures what romance
with someone special is all about.
You are precious, an exceptional women,
and will remain in my heart for all eternity.
