When Love Dies (Mila Reyes-Garcia)

When love dies

No one sends flowers

And little cards to lift

Crushed spirits up

No one offers mass

And nine-day prayers

For the battered heart to find

Its peace

No kind epitaphs

Nor eulogies singing praises

And no comes to do

Your wearisome chores for you

When love dies

You cry your cries


(imagine, finding this poem lost between piles of mai's previous emails about Carlo.)

that's a poem in her book "somewhere between your smile and your frown. 1982" try to find a copy. it's a very beautiful and elaborate poetry about love and the lack of it.
