Song for the broken hearted

Love is never lost

Never erased

It lives in the cells that remember

Touch breath embrace

The light whisper 

the laughter

It lives on in the patterns of light that flash

Through our inner darkness

It formed the pathways

Birthed this future out of darkness

Love is never lost

It is captured in memory

And more that memory in form

It lives in our every transaction

In how we smile how we sing

It lives in the shape of our growth

Like the wind in the shape of a twisting branch

Like sunlight in the reaching trunk

Love is never in vain never

Futile never meaningless

It’s fact is solid

Solid as death

Love once given cannot be taken

From us it lives in our existence

Like dna coiling through the whole

Like starborn atoms indivisible from the past

And from our futures

Spreading weblike into everything we touch

Love is never lost



We have to learn to live

With the fading

Of memory leaves love

The things most lovely

Are so fleeting

It can seem pointless to even live 

But we must learn

That nothing lost is gone

But vibrates permanently

Time circles us

And while I may forget

And certainly end

Each point a star in the universe unending

We lose but we do not lose

We live and cannot be unlived

And nothing dies but us

I can live with that
