I Want to Love
By Rachel A. Gold
I want to love and be loved again,
I want to laugh and to cry,
To feel the uncertainty loving bestows,
And the hope that a glance can espy.
I want to live over my dreams that are gone,
By crude hands all cruelly shattered;
The one who has given has taken away
As if they were nothing that mattered
Perhaps I shall love and be loved again
By another far fairer than he,
But I shall be careful, for dreams that are gone
Are slow in returning to me.
