Love and Risk

by Judy (Wishes on NetForum)

Those who would dare love dare loss.
There it is:  a challenge or a curse.
Love any mortal on the earth,
And risk that final grief
That binds together love and death.
Or refuse to hazard love
On those who move and breathe
And who'll partake someday
Of every creature's fate,
And so choose a life completely safe. . . .
From love, from loss,
From all but emptiness.
