Favorite Quote:
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" Romeo and Juliet

And there is no greater gift than love

How lucky am I to have felt it
An emotion as pure as the feathers of a dove

Through family, friends, and one had and lost
I continue on with strength

Love of my family, friends, and more, at what cost?
Not that I mind the cost any longer

The loss was painful
Now I'm stronger

Love is given and received
Love makes us whole

Our lives conceived
These few years but flashes of memories

Sad and happy, but beautiful all the same
Love me, is all that is written through my life's diaries

So I'll live much longer through love and loss
And I will love all around me

No matter what cost

The author's comments:
This piece of poetry was inspired by the the knowledge that I am loved in life, even when those who are precious to me leave.

It can be hard when we lose someone we love. However, you are right at least we know we were loved.
