Love Once Again

This is a poem for two people who lost their spouses and then found one another. It was originally written for Esther and Charley Perry.

Love Once  Again

By Sharon L. Bratcher, 1994

I once knew love- it flourished so:

For years and years that love did grow.

So deep, so much a part of me.

Our souls, entwined devotedly.

O hateful death to rob me so!

The dark abyss of grief to know.

And endless days to face alone.

My future’s song to onward drone.

New Love! You understood this too.

Now each hour’s joy is traced to you.

Together we now grow as one

And celebrate new lives begun.
