Tis a Fearful Thing

It is a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.
A fearful thing
to love, hope, dream:
to be
to lose...
A thing for fools, this.
A holy thing.
A holy thing
to love.
For your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.
To remember this brings painful joy.
'Tis a human thing: love.
A holy thing
to love
what death has touched.
