Home: Poetry: Donny Shumaker: Undying Love

To have love that can reach

Past all hardship and pain.

To have love that can reach

Beyond Death, himself.

To have love that can reach

Beyond the stars.

To have love that can reach

Into my very soul.

I envy these men.

Many of them take this miracle for granted.

Not I. No, not I.

To have such love in my heart

And have some one with this same love.

Our souls would be complete.

But where do I find it?

Where is such a woman

That would, or even could, embrace this new life.

I may know where.

But she does not listen.
