The Tender Side of Love

We are blessed to suffer once
The pain of love’s disjointing
For the grief of love must be
Its bitter-sweet anointing

To never grieve is to never love
I’ll choose the tear’s oppression
Over empty laughter without love
For grief is love’s expression



Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
