Resolved  What is love if you can't hold it near? Like a flame that burns too hot to touch  So, what does it matter if you're not here? When I can't have what I want so much.  What use is longing if what I wish cannot be? Like that distant star that will never be near And never be satisfied unless you're next to me  A star's mystery only solved when you are here.  Yet, I have to accept your love still more distant  That only in my dreams can appear as real For though I can say there is only o...

It is Not the Night  It is not the night whose solitude puts me to sleep Where its dreams the landscape of our love While in your arms this world's promises keep Nothing more peaceful your presence does prove.  It is not the morning gently unfolding to the day  Where in its breadth our romance finds its ground  But only complete when it is under your sway Nothing more boundless than where you are found.  It is not this world, Heaven's child, my life most gives Born of a spiritual...

Never Measure Time has been on its mission but why are you absent Isn't love so strong that it can't leave you behind? I have to believe because from Heaven you are sent And Time, what's eternal, love's course cannot find. Even when what the day puts in my way to forget In my heart what I am feeling cannot, for long, hide Anything that means the most to me your love let What Time passes forgotten when you're by my side. So, here you have reclaimed nothing removes Even w...

No Time for Vanity  So to time is cruel with its hand  Because no time for our vanities  At least long enough here to stand To show our vainglorious trivialities. But, thought the stage of perfection  Where the world would bend to our will Then an invisible force introduces oblivion  While this world stubbornly refuses to stand still.  Never a part of what was our infallible plan That all would bend to our quest for control  That civilization only before our power stand  Sudden...

Goodnight  Goodnight Senator McCain  Your life was anything but plain It was not the issues we could dispute  But your integrity and courage cannot refute. Even in your last days your patriotism proved Calling out what threatens your sacrifice  Now, your service our conscience moved And your legacy past these threats will rise. The best eulogy will be when tributes take action  And your words awake us to what may be lost  For the stakes are the future of our nation And let its ...

No Use to Deny  And I love you no use to deny As if my feelings did not know Whenever near you my heart does fly  And past you do not want to go. What am I going, with such feelings, to do Settle with a routine life while for you pine? And how go through life without you  How empty the journey if you're not mine.  Yet, tonight the stars are bright but something miss And if I go out and their mystery see How more fitting if they the canopy of our kiss And their universe only com...

Only There for Me  I saw this stone he sun gave in its best light But, soon the night its facets will not show  Is it enough that dreams put it in sight  And its full brilliance then know. It is only in the day its value realize  And the sun’s rays make clear That in its light, past dreams, most prize How much better you are here.  You are the diamond that dimensions transcend  Your brilliance rivaling the stars that shine  And, so the night can only your beauty send The heaven...

My True Love  So, I lost all these women in my life  When one should have been enough  When love, once lost, brings no strife So, where is true love this life's proof? The dilemma is where is this world centered  If not around one which all else revolves? And if not by this one it has entered  The purpose of all this question not solves. If I lose you, too, is there someone to take your place  So, why these love songs or poems should I write  And if there is another beauty that ...

Long and Winding Road  I wandered down this long and winding road  Looking for love along the way But the twists and turns should have told  This is like finding a diamond in a field of clay  Until, with the oak trees yawning, the day awoke A spirit arose that its landscape stirred  And then the songbirds with this message spoke  In a melody that this earth now heard.  Until I treaded to a lake's beckoning shore Its rippling currents evoking an inner serenity  No matter how diff...

All a Part  There is this battle of which we are all a part Whether we know it or not what role we play  The winner the one with the truest heart  Never caring for power but for a better way.  It is not the odds faced that matter most But the courage and conviction our dreams pursue  And if we fall short, still, goodness found a host But, if we succeed to our destiny proved true.  And history has shown this struggle and sacrifice  And those renowned because they knew the stakes...

Love's Legacy  Life flows around me but not in my heart The sound and din of history  But, its legacy empty if we are not a part. And our future fruitful if yours with me.  Where the greatest civilizations arise They are meaningless to me without you Did not Caesar submit before a queen's eyes? And it was her conquest we see him through.  And I can't suffer, yet, another ordinary day  For the life you give makes it so much more It is only fulfilling if with me you stay For from...
