I Have Never Felt the Love
(Repost because it breaks my heart to read of so many who have not had this type of love to remember.)
I have never felt the love
That others speak about.
I do not understand the pain
Some profess that love has brought.
I never felt that type of love
I have memories that speak,
Of kindness and thoughtful ways
Of rearing youngsters in those days,
Of being busy with just living
And keeping life together.
Memories of sharing thoughts,
Of tears shed,
Over loss of babies never born.
Our daughter, so bright and yet
Found life just too hard to stay.
The son who never lived
Beyond one day.
Tears of sadness and then of Happiness,
Brought on by little things.
And although I often think of all of it.
I do not dwell upon the loss
But share the memories of love.
