love lost

love grows
its so huge
bigger and richer
and ever more lovely

we tie this to another
a sister or brother
a lover

love grows
dependence intertwines

we are timid, afraid
and then the other
driven by their fear
goes away

we learn to be removed
stay aloof
and hold other hearts
at arms length

love grows
we can learn to undo
artificial distance
dispel fear

love grows
and it can grow beyond
bigger than either
bigger than both of us

so when you are finally taken
it can hurt beyond words
it can hurt beyond sanity

we may lose the ones we love
but Love is never taken from us
