Love Fruits, Passion's Meals On Which I Once Sup

Love Fruits, Passion's Meals On Which I Once Sup When I ponder my life, its fleeing years- Youth with its blessings and its cold dark fears; Wandering through world and paths not taken Truth of the sorrows and those forsaken; Faint gaspings of romantic interludes; Treasures lost, unforgiving attitudes; Celebrating those small victories gained, Savoring what true love in life remained. Whispers searching soul once so gaily heard, Morn's sweet call, with its warbling of songbirds, Lessons learned from sorrows, pain's dark cup Love fruits, passion's meals on which I once sup What life was, later what it came to be; What finally made a good man of me.
