Gone Love

by Verna Cole Mitchell

Where does love go when it's gone?
Is it melted by the heat of angry words
Or smothered by the flames of other loves,
Or does it simply fade away
With broken dreams and half-forgotten hopes?

Is love that's gone transformed to new emotion,
Like hate or fear, despair or resignation?
No matter where it goes,
Whenever it is gone,
Love's memory will linger on and on.
