Loved and Lost?

I’ve heard it often,
that three word phrase;
“Loved and Lost”
on their dismal days,
But I cannot say
that I agree
with such a saying
those words, those three…
I’ve loved, not often,
but enough to know,
nothing was lost,
Truth, this is so!
Each time I’ve loved,
each time I’ve gained,
each time I’ve given,
and gotten again
newer insights
into this thing,
this thing called love
that gives us wings.
I’ve loved truly,
deeply too;
I meant each word
of every “I love you”.
Do I love them still?
Oh yes, indeed;
my heart, never a slave,
my soul, never in need;
Each love different,
yet each the same,
lights in my life,
like a candle’s flame.
Loved and lost?
Not for me!
I love, I live!
Love stays with me.
