By Charles Robert Lindholm

The seeds of love he planted

grew deeply in my heart

He wrapped his love

around my world

in a romantic

work of art 

I’ve lived through all

of Love’s seasons.

And at last

I’ve learned

the reasons

why it is

love withers and dies

why it brings heartache

and tears to your eyes

it’s hard to concede

his Love like a weed

now needs rooting

out of my heart
