To Love Again

My heart is heavy-laden with love anew.
For to thee, hath I pledged love forever true.
Of constant heart I promised to be. 
What now hindereth my vow to thee?
Only death’s cruel hand which took thee from me!

Shall I now at fate’s bequeath surrender my heart 
to love once more?
Between heartache and desire I am torn.
 In tearful sorrow I make my plea; I ask that thou release me.
The heart ,who past knowing, can but understand
how joy and sorrow could walk hand in hand.

    Amazing portrait of an inner crossroads, stradding a fence between different focal points. Very beautifully said and realized

    Yr poem expresses the feeling of wanting to love again yet fearful of its pitfall. It is a well written piece for all to see.
