So I wonder if one can fall in love again,
is there a second chance in life?
Can it ever be as good as your first love?
and I wonder if I love again
if it is a betrayal of my first love?
Or, is my heart and my life
big enough to contain both?
But then, perhaps,
Love cannot be contained?
Maybe it is meant to spill out
and rush joyfully like a river
down the mountainside,
tumbling over stones
with a little gray Dipper
darting into the cascade,
hunting for water insects.
Perhaps this is how love should be.
