True Love

It is not good to know
what is this thing called Love
and what it takes to say
“I love you, dearest one”

Alas, you often find
that True Love comes along
too early or too late
or sometimes not at all

For me it has been all
or none of the above
for True Love often comes
in many different forms

Althought I often find
myself the lucky one
if such a luck it is
to have someone to miss,

the truth is hard to grasp:
that True Love often means
to have to let go of
the one you truly love
