Love Is Not Lost

By William Spell

Love is not lost
The way keys are lost,
Leaving you unable to unlock doors
Or lock the one behind you.

Love is not lost
The way your phone is lost
Needing another to make it ring
So it will reveal its hiding place.

Love is not lost
The way your glasses are lost
Leaving you unable to focus
Or see where you are going.

Love is not lost
The way you get lost
Without a map or compass,
Asking strangers where you might be.

Love is not lost 
The way light is lost
At the end of a long summer day
Leaving you waiting for tomorrow’s dawn.

Love is not lost 
The way truth is lost
Obscured by misconception,
Warped by what you want it to be.

Love is not lost 
The way time is lost,
Slipping quietly into the past,
Fading as memories do.

Love abides.
Love endures.
Love lives.
Love is not lost.
