Love's Legacy

Love's Legacy

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

How fleeting is the comet's flare
which trails ablaze through dark night sky?
How swiftly moves our time on earth
before we part with sad goodbyes?
And in-between, what does it mean?
It all concerns the seeds we sow.
For love and love alone ensures
the worth of all we choose to grow.

The really wise understand how to live on this earth. If life could be described in just a word, it would be fleeting and the need of every human is nothing but love. The message in the poem is profound and urgent and is so well enhanced by the great rhyming.

The true meaning of life and living. Life is indeed fleeting, and when we will be gone our story will also become lost with time but the love and compassion that we sprayed, will linger. If we are being able to cause a single smile in someone's life that will be worth living. So true, and timeless this piece...

I have read much of your work, and find your words very compelling. Yet this short piece is, in my humble opinion, your best. You captrue so much, with so few words - the hallmark of a real poet. Your works are sheer quality.

This speaks a resounding simple truth that, sadly escapes the world's frantically busy poulations.

I agree, I wholeheartedly agree.

I wsih you peace.

Yes. yes and yes. Love the flowing of this beautiful piece of poetry. Love is the only reality that will prevail. All the rest is a painful illusion.

I was realizing the other day how quickly our legacy can fade while considering the loss of both my mother and my father. And yet, in the now we find endless moments where we can love, and impact the not yet with every possible joy. Thank you for this poem that helps us keep our focus on what really matters in this life... so fleeting.
