Anniversary   The leaves may turn and the petals fail but my love will never leave The years may go and you're not here but still your spirit know I only need to think of your memory and then I need not grieve For where you are the happiness you gave me here again show.   And it is easy to give into your loss and my sorrow But then I will have to forget those happy moments we did share And though I may miss you again tomorrow In every ray of light that shines I find...

Unwavering Faith   Our spirit can never be broken as our will is strong Because nothing can stand in its way For to a higher purpose do we all belong And this is only the testing ground where we stay.   We will, one day, prove that our promise will realize All the challenges we faced will overcome As long as we know that Heaven is the prize To no evil here will ever simply succumb.   It may seem these words are only written in vain That the darkness around ...

Sonnet  353 (Love as Sweet) The sun so softly shines  where love does grow  The night cannot obscure such rays so bright  But where you are the fairest light I know  Where all on earth must bend before your light.  The Robin sings so sweetly in the day  The silence, now, is smitten by her sound  And where you’re heard a melody does play  So, in my heart, my harmony is found.  The ocean’s waves upon the shore do land  Their ebbs and flows do bring serenity  The way I’m calm by ho...

No Time (In memory of St Curtis Lance) And Time has dealt its cold hand once more As it will with all on this earth that are living But, then, Heaven must open its door To the spirit you are bringing. But a place brightened by your light That makes it stand out among the stars For now they must acknowledge your sight That no darkness mars. And you will live forever there Where angels your poetry will recite In the melody that even for them rare And show Heaven Earth's best ligh...

Sonnet 351 (Only Come from You) What sound I hear that whispers in the air? An angel's voice that found an earthly ear So sweet I need not climb to Heaven's stair For with such chords is Heaven singing here. Yet, 'round I look and nothing do I see A spirit, then, must be the reason why I cannot touch but yet envelops me My cares erase and draws from me a sigh. The trees before such melody do dance The river's flow reflects its rhythmic sound That nature bends and shakes to such ...

Death's Second Self This mythical fascination with immortality I believe each moment here is precious Though I know Death will stop for me Then the life I live here most relish. When that time comes and I must leave I wish my time here remembered well Though those left behind for me may grieve The example I left, I wish, lives on to tell. No need to hope this earth no limits give The time it allows is enough for me I am grateful for those moments it lets me live Though there ma...

A Look I see the way you look at me And you see the way I look at you Our heart's invitation all can see Only a few words to see it through. Our feelings nothing can deny Now the next step they must take That our longing will satisfy And from our feelings our union make. And learn love’s appearance unknown It does not care if you believe it shows It is governed by what our spirit sown And only by what our heart knows. Seeing you again may be the time When our feelings to ou...

 Only a Taste There was an angel that Heaven sent to me And through her spirit I learned to love A feeling that from this earth made me free I should have known it came from above. For soon from this place, she had to go And I was left to deal with what she left behind Without her love only sorrow left to know And nowhere else such love could find. And now I am left with only this question Should I go on without a woman so divine? Then have to continue having learned this lesson...

Christmas Forever  the world was dark before, no end in sight Until that morn a babe was born here That from our darkness showed the light That showed us hope and no more fear. And now the darkness comes once more So why do we want to celebrate? For all that's bad goodness does abhor This day we show that it can wait. It may well be our fate uncertain For the babe turned man put it in our hands Will we rise to the occasion or pull the curtain? Maybe He the only one who understa...

Christmas Every Day You say it’s Christmas every day and it is true Except this Christmas a couple things missing I will miss the snowfall and now, you Between the two, you the best dressing. I can go without the snow or the cold But that day on the beach I saw your radiance That warmth will not be here to see or hold Even though the sun shines in all its brilliance. So, I will look for Christmas in an empty season Maybe place a tree to spread some cheer Without the one who gave...

The Love You Give  Isolated where paradise in all its grandeur live But its beautiful bounty is not meant for me For all its riches your precious love does not give  And for its landscape to be complete you I need to see.  So, I reside where heaven would call a second home  But where it best lived was in your eyes Now where all seems complete my heart needs to roam  To find the love that would be paradise’s greatest prize.  And the night’s moon beckons and the morning call The st...

Love Never End  So, I now know what I felt not real How could I be so mistaken? And illusions for once did feel And my heart so falsely taken.  But why do you still live in my dreams? When your true feelings shown Love is seldom what it seems So, I must return to being alone.  But when I sleep you are still there What I can shake in the day not last For in the Night my feelings laid bare That from my waking world been cast. So, love not something rejection takes away Or wha...

The Beckoning Sea The ghostly  sails of the ship Steer the vessel serenely on In the twilight that to the morning slips To the shore of the beckoning dawn. Its salty arms reaching the salty crests To pull it in where it finally rests. And the vessel embraces its home To end its star-driven journey  No more watery passages roam But the sand where its salty wake free.  Until the sea, again, enticingly beckons  And the shore's sandy arms let the vessel go For with the freedom o...

The Promise In a few days, our nation will let the world hear our voice And it will be loud, and it will be clear To learn we only had one choice To choose hope over fear. It may have looked like we were divided And that our democracy was in danger But in a few days, we will show we are still united Who bet on our experiment laid the best wager. The people are the ones who understood it best Not our institutions or those leaders untrue They are the reason we will pass this test ...

Only in the Night  I don’t want to sleep, to give in To the night don’t want to succumb  But it looks like the darkness is going to win And those painful dreams will come.  The point is that they are too real Even though I wake up to the day But they already awakened how I feel That in this world you could not stay.  No, I don’t want to sleep, though my body draws me near  Soon I know I will lose this daily fight To the realm my heart does deeply fear To find your love only liv...

She Walks in Sunshine  She walks where sunshine must bow And from her radiance this world lives  And from her beauty all else does grow  For from her essence its purpose gives.  Where she sings the songbirds follow Where she sighs the wind exhales  So the songs her melody will borrow  And even a tempest in her wake pales. When the stars point their way she is already there Her light is what they enviously copy For in her aspect their grandeur laid bare  And the light shared wit...

Only My Heartbreak  I said I loved this one and only woman  But about how many can we say the same? I guess that our feelings have only proven We are lured by the nearest flame.  I look back and how many like her do I see? Each one I swore I would love forever  Only to find out this was not to be I was left looking for another lover. So, I am left questioning if love is real If no one woman can this passion show  And left to question what I truly feel Maybe true love is somethi...

I am forgetting you, even though you live in the sun’s shade And the moon’s glow, I still am letting you go And with each passing day your memories fade Soon the last leave and your love no longer know. Though I see you in my dreams you are still fleeting  For in the morning not lying in my bed So, the new day comes but not with your greeting And awake in a lonely room, instead. And through each day I see many faces but do not see you Soon I will not expect yours, in all its beauty,...

When My Love Appear No lines can express what a heart can feel Though they can try their best to do For on this page futile to convey what is real For no words can take the place of you. And poor substitutes for the love you gave They must let imagination take your place Never enough, here, for your memory to save But only its outlines can trace. I see a Rose and appreciate its beauty For I know too well, soon, it will be lost Like those times you were next to me And then lonel...

When Paradise Real  Paradise is not what I expected it to be I am still lonely with all this beauty around  For the one I love I cannot, again, see A true paradise only with you can be found.  I don’t know how long I can stay here I am only reminded of what I miss Paradise was only where you once did appear Staying here, something is still amiss. When together, it didn’t matter how harsh the weather  How dark or cold was each day We found warmth in being together  And this chas...

My True Love Bring  We think we know about life but know nothing at all In one swift moment everything can be taken away And once you thought you were whole how quickly you fall For nothing here was ever meant to stay. And what we thought was valuable worthless turns out to be And what was truly precious too soon from its loss learn  In one swift moment this truth will see And then only for redemption can yearn.  And I would trade all the world’s riches for what I lost  But the l...

e is All You Need I been beat down by society, but I refuse to give in I have been an outcast but do not care anymore Though it looks like the system will still win It will only prove that goodness abhor. Because my crime is, I do not subscribe to convention My path is my own to tread And I must follow my own direction And let my actions decide where it has led. And though not accepted, I prefer my free will The rest to some dogma or cause may believe But I will let my spirit wi...

Heavenly Bridge She walks on Heaven’s bridge, its brightest star From its home to mine to bring her celestial light So that from her love I am never far Embracing her here but when gone never far from sight. For when she leaves, I only need look around For now, on this Earth is my paradise She descends so, in her arms, her spirit found And see the universe in her beautiful eyes. And when I look above from her home not apart Where the stars shine, I find her home There is no dist...
