The Price of Love

What? Another love poem? That’s what Writer’s Digest was asking for today. Then I hopped over to NaPoWriMo and the prompt was about money or the cost, price, or value of something. After several false starts, this rondel came into being. It’s not what I set out to write, but it’s what wanted to be written. Who am I to argue with the muse?

My brother and I years ago - he passed away when he was 22.

My brother and I years ago – he passed away when he was 22.

Love often comes at a high price,

It’s one I’d gladly pay.

If you’d come back for one more day,

It would more than suffice.

Many times, I need your advice

Things changed when you went away.

Love often comes at a high price,

It’s one I’d gladly pay.

To see you again would be so nice

I know I will someday.

For now, brother, I’ll just convey

My heart and it’ll suffice.

Love often comes at a high price.
