So Many Words Of Love Have Already Been Written

Poem By Shalom Freedman

So many words of love have already been written
Why should my poem for you be anything new?

It is true I loved you very much
And for years was deluded in the joyful thought that you loved me
I wrote of course words of love to you
But they are lost like most of what I have written-

Do I still love you now
So many years after we truly loved?

I loved you with the total obsessive love of one for whom the happiness of the other is the only meaning of the world-

Now I am old and far from even true remembrance of the love
that once was my life
And where you are in your soul I sadly do not truly know.

Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try
I am too old now
And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
