In this Rhyme With your spirit gone what else remain? This world cannot its riches boast For a jewel in sorrow's light but plain When Life takes what you love the most. I am but Death undone, an empty shell A ghost where once my blood did flow And doomed this lonely world to dwell This burial ground no other death need know. The most vivid sounds I hear but mute to me Its brightest colors are only coldly dull The only taste I have is for eternity To take me from this place Life...

A Lovers Pact You cannot leave my soul behind For no happiness in this place will know And where I look such love will not find So where you are I will long to go. The measure of my life the moments share Empty if from this place you depart Then the world still turning but I won’t care For with all its wealth still missing your heart. And I cannot imagine a life without your love In fact, that would not be living at all For every breath I take only my loneliness prove Only wait...

My Heart Should Know I saw a glittering object on the ground one day Attracted, I picked it up to get a closer look But the sun started to fade, the sky turned gray In my hand stood this dull stone my fancy mistook. I can only wait for the sun to soon return And its brilliance to once again, in the day, glow Until then for what stirred my heart must yearn Maybe it's not this stone but my heart should know.

Only Live in Dreaming This is my home, a blank page But fuller than the world so shallow Here I can present a different stage Whose last act does not end in sorrow. I can fill this with lines that warm my soul That tell of love everlasting And forget the place where it never know For only happiness here am casting. To create my Venus, to adorn my night Not a frenzied place, still, so empty Here her heaven within my sight And forget, here, you will never be with me. This canv...

A Divided House I will say the sky is blue and you say it is black But what facts I argue will disagree The truth trivialized though it attack But, still, we will only disagree. What can I say to our political situation When different views will not waver? So too trite to postulate salvation What springs from truth can’t savor. So, where can we find a path to follow When you say yours is as true? It will make any other way shallow Then you want me to follow you. Then our pro...

What Is? What is that sound that serenades my soul? Not the bird's song that shares its melody But your soothing voice that in my heart does grow That whispers your sweet love for me. What is that twinkling in the night? Not the stars that point so far away But your eyes in which I bask in your sight That beckons me to your world to stay. What is that motion that makes my heart yearn? Not the Earth that around the Sun does move But the way you walk that makes my head turn And m...

Sonnet 343 (Your Love) How sweet your voice that lightens up my day When robins sing your chords their notes inspire A perfect melody their music play Arousing in this man still more desire. How wonderful your eyes that stir my soul I look into as mirrors of your heart And this day's light, through them, does clearly show I learn that, from your sight, can’t live apart. How heavenly your walk is on Earth's land Massaging fawning breezes in your wake Your spritely sway where my s...

Sonnet 342 (Your Love I Know) The boughs are bare where late the birds once sang And, too, the garden cold where flowers grew And gone the warmth the day too me once brang Those sunny days that I had spent with you. And darkness falls where once the day so bright The night too quickly ushered in its place This world is best when in your eyes alight And winter thawing where your beauty trace. And you the sun where my own soul does live Like birds that always sing their melody So ...

Buried in this Rhyme I saw you tonight and my sun only fed By the fire that, in you, burns And this earth is only our bed To fulfill what our heart yearns. How many times can I say I need you How many lines here this can express? Over and over until they are through And nothing more I need confess. The years go by and, yet, here remain How many more must go by? Yet, I would forsake poetry for what is plain And trade it if, alongside you, I lie. Yet, how much longer see you i...

  Say this Plain And I can’t live without you and say this plain Not say like the earth without the sun What I want to say without you feel such pain The earth will still spin, but lose my only one. And tonight I will sleep alone one more time Not say I hope to see you in a dream But pour my sadness in this plaintive rhyme I may sleep but the morning sun without you gleam. And I have another day to face without you here Not say that my love preserved if someone read But say t...

My Life Fulfill No emperor so powerful or king so strong That his empire would gladly give So he could claim the love he so long That no wealth or power in equal measure give. No priest or prophet's faith so fixed That on this Earth can dismiss its love For its embodiment in you even Heaven transfixed And Faith’s own foundation your beauty prove. No Robin that sings the sweetest melody Or ocean wave that curtsies to the moon Can sound the notes of your rhapsody While the cosmos...
