Need You Here I can’t do better in this verse Than write lines to your love There is nothing worse Than what my heart can’t prove. I don’t know if this will do To show, here, what I feel Except that I need you What else is there to reveal? I don’t want, this night, to sleep Dreams are gone in the morning All I want is you to keep Why else is this world turning? Here I am while you are gone Painful when so far away I need you, here, to go on I need you, in my life, to stay...

Your Eyes This life must have a purpose to be here Or else why am I living? Then I see you standing near And feel the love you are giving. And now I know the reason it gives To have you with me So my happiness lives And in this world sets it free. You are the gift that I most prize This season blessed for this I see this in your eyes And feel it with your kiss. Now I can appreciate this season And can share in its joy For your love gives it reason That in your arms always...

XMas Merry Christmas baby, our special time of year Where in the air the sounds of joy are found With the snow dancing and falling I hold you near With the magic of this day our love surround. The stars like Christmas bulbs wrapping the night In twinkling garlands of a cosmic tree And I know my finest gift awaits the morning light When you unwrap your beautiful self for me. The melodies of Christmas carols fill the air Their spirit filling it with faith and mirth To celebrate th...

I Saw You Today I saw you today and you let me know the sun is real For I could feel its warmth through your smile Now when the morning comes I know the day can feel For you are here to make it all worthwhile. And I learned that life is meant to live For through you I can understand its meaning Because what is best in it your love give And all comes from the joy I am feeling. I saw you today and you left nothing to fear When you came to embrace me this proved Now, my doubts gone, all I need is y...

Face to Face I will only write this to pass the time I don’t look to posterity for these lines preserve Not do I care that I write this simple rhyme For some higher purpose my life does serve. And this page used by the greatest artists past Their canvas that their passion timelessly convey But, what I write only for this moment last And if I have you don’t care if it will stay. My brush is only dully filled for not meant to spill What colors that would fill in what you bring Whi...

Empty Love Okay, I love you, I have to admit While I feel the coming cold Where winter gives no respite Except if I have you to hold. But, I realize this is not to be So, the cold season gives no reprieve And only in dreams lie with me While in the morning you will leave. Now, here I am with this empty love Without you how will I do? Except that only loneliness prove If I am not alongside of you. How empty to admit this love I feel A happiness I cannot know What in the wor...

Beyond These Lines So, I won’t write any lines that bore you or heard before That you have seen already written so here won’t write I want to tell you something novel its theme explore Into a new direction you learn in a different light. It is this, won’t waste any more of this verse's time Or what you are looking for while your interest pique And not tritely speak about some truth beyond this rhyme For what the truth holds past these lines still seek. If I expostulate about the r...

Teacher The boughs are only bare because their leaves have fallen Where before the trees stood cloaked in green And where the river once flowed now is frozen Where on its summer banks shared a romantic scene. And where I see only a few stars sparkle in the night Where before weaved a necklace your beauty did adorn Now when the morning comes and you are not in sight All else comes alive but, here, our love no longer born. And my dreams where you appeared only barren While my thoug...

Love’s Course So, I know when we touch this is what you desire Despite what propriety's cold hand dictate For feeling you stirs our passion’s fire And, then, convention's rules can wait. But, more than our simple transgression To find we're free from what our love confine And we finally succumb to our passion And your body fully tells me you are mine. From one touch our feelings now reveal And what held them back falls apart For from this our true desire can’t conceal And from ...

Best Stand You are not here so nothing to feel Only empty lines this page can fill I have to pretend that life is real When I have to go on without its thrill. I can say that as soon as I think of you are here And that absence makes my heart more fond But when the sun sets its light will disappear And only highlights the dark to your wake abscond. If I see you, even more, you body touch That is the light that kindles my fire And no lines written can ever want you as much As whe...

Truest Place She must have only lived in one of life’s dreams That could not have been given birth in the light of day A still born world where happiness not as it seems And then better to sleep so she, again, can come my way. But, this is the realm that the cosmos gave birth So why not here that such a dream come true? For there is nothing of more value than love’s worth And that can only happen if I am here with you. So, why should I reply on dreams or Heaven’s gate To enter so...

Silence Hear that silence that hides behind dead sounds Like the Robin whose song now melancholy Like the crash of the waves to the bank surrounds I can but only hear your breath when next to me.  And sounds of life that nothing living in me stir The laughter and cries that the heart will move To me but dulled by the sadness to mine defer And not joy or sympathy but my plight prove. And what is silent I most clearly around me hear The morning sun awakening the virgin day But its...

Love’s Borders Through our absence haven't changed for me Your radiance sparks the day That would also be grateful for such beauty But not gauge the time you came my way. And love does not count the time in between When first it felt until once again feel its rapture That once near you its power is seen And it is this moment it eternally capture. It is like we have never been apart No matter how much distance or time interfere My life only in your sight once again start And its...

Most Prove Soon, I will see you again and feel it now Anticipation, exhilaration, at the prospect For what is wrong and propriety disallow But seeing you convention can’t affect. I tried so hard to keep my feelings at bay But knowing you will be there must ignore Like denying the sun lights our day Our distance only makes me want you more. Only a few days that keep these feelings from fruition I should obey society's rules and show restraint Then you are before me and filled wit...

Your Love Still Grow The choirs no longer sound the boughs are bare Where once their winged hosts brought such song From their verdant homes to fill the virgin air And in this place, so desolate and dark, for you long. For if I have back I feel the spring will return And this rebirth in my soul will find fertile ground To grow like the rose that to any heart yearn It is in such a season of rebirth my love is found. But, now the autumn here and the final leaves fall Not before a f...

In Heaven I saw your picture a little while ago And suddenly I was awake I realized from my heart you can never go And nothing more from this life can take. I know I can never have you here And this world had to fill in the space Until the time in some other realm appear And once again know your embrace. When I saw you I knew only an angel's guise That only appeared for my pleasure For once I looked into you eyes I looked upon Heaven’s treasure. Now Heaven will appear in my ...

Yes, I Love You Yes, I love you, I cannot this truth deny It seems we were meant for destiny For if not meant for each other destiny belie And what is only real if you are meant for me. Let these words go, I now saw your face In front of that everything else disappears Left to rationalize what dispelled by your embrace In front of anything else, your love most appears. I can go on through life’s ordinary motions And try to content myself with what's ordinary But, what gives purp...

Next to Me When walking in the afternoon where early snow laid its carpet down This serenity caresses me like the infant breeze that blows I have to believe in such pristine beauty your spirit found Cradled by the landscape my longing for such promise grows. In what seems only natural surrounded by magnificence The virgin snow glistening under the smiling sun And beyond the regal trees sense your radiance For paradise would surely be alone unless you are the one. I continue baskin...

A More Fitting Place This love of mine is simply too far away And thoughts and dreams won’t bring her near I have to painfully accept it will be this way And nothing on this earth will bring you here. So, I am left with this sober realization To be left alone with no comfort to know And this must be my only satisfaction The moments we had before you had to go. And love on this earth is very fleeting For its purpose cannot know how long Perhaps enough to know love's greeting If ...

Time The day is only measured by your heart's rendering Time never has, over our lives, such control Because it can feel like a moment or never-ending Though minutes counted, past them your experience know. You wish time forever when happiness feel And wish it so short when sadness holds sway And when your joy goes you feel it did wrongly steal But with your sorrow wish so much it goes away. So, Time is only a fickle state of mind That bends not to measurement but something more ...

Empty Page This page is blank where I have to write about you What should I fill it with, what metaphors  will impress? What techniques to express what in my heart true? I would rather keep this empty if your love to me undress. Shall I care that these lines past our lives survive That when read by others to posterity grow? But, what matters most is when you are here alive I don’t care what some future readers know. I might fill this canvass where you best rendered And the colors...

Absence Don’t think absence keeps us apart Or the absence that is in-between For you are always in my heart If not in my presence seen. And though there is this interlude Don’t think it is because I forget But absence has only my love brewed For an appetite only you can whet. And though this night without you sleep Don’t think in my dreams you don’t live For if in them your love can keep Until, in the day's light, will give. Now, I wish this absence temporary And, once agai...

My Happiness Go I survived another day and I am glad To give me the chance tomorrow will be better First, I must forget the love I once had To survive perhaps this loss can weather. So, I will awake and better if I didn’t dream Because the day without you a blank slate To be embellished with what regret seem That what we knew nothing else overrate. But, now I must survive another tomorrow Though I should look to the promise it brings Yet, I am afraid, at the end, only know sorro...

All I Know I love you, I cannot forget Time may get in the way But my feeling absence only whet For in my heart you stay. These days so quickly go by And what we prized dissipate But what I feel this world can’t pry Nothing can pass but before you wait. I love you, that is all I know All else our earthly preview Free from here our love still show And this the place it grew. Does this distance separate you from me That you are the exception to time? For there is no gulf whe...

Grand Muse I will see my heavenly muse sing Her song its angels have allowed And on this stage their voice bring But to their earthly angel bowed. And when her notes fill the air Songbirds wish she join their choir To join a melody that is so rare That our hearts to it sweetly inspire. In the audience this talent admire Transcended flight as her voice flows From her sublimity she ignites a fire Angelic tones where passion grows.

Redemption I saw the sun rise for a new day And for this should rejoice Except for me you didn’t stay And the sounds of life have no voice. But, I must arise and go through the motions With this emptiness I must bear All the while suppressing my emotions Going through them when you’re not there. Now, the moon holds it head high while mine is low With only my dreams to find the beauty that is you Until the morning comes to remind me what I know Past the illusions of life you sho...

Because the change you want takes everyone Something you, sadly, don’t understand And that day our victory will only come When together with you the rest of us stand. For your revolution is not reserved for the few Your battle cry for the reason you fight But both sides wrong unless thi...

My Heart Break You see that star shining so far in the night? I thought you were that sun shining for me Now it looks like your love is farther from sight And that star still shine but your love can’t see. You hear that songbird's last notes before she leaves? I thought your chords could as sweetly sway my heart But it seems you will first leave as my life grieves And she will sing somewhere else while we’re apart. See the leaves whose once verdant boughs now bare? I thought you ...

Timeless Treasure When eternity bows to your minute Listen to what it wants you to know That is, our life was never finite For to its realm destined to go. But, in that space you can point here Though brief, its expanse can’t compete For in this moment your love did appear And for this all else is complete. So, Time can’t define what will most endure Our love it can never measure The borders from here to Heaven obscure Where love proves a timeless treasure.

For What May I Yearn? I have known life’s brief lease Delivered from darkness and to it return Here, I could gauge my peace But around its borders for what may I yearn? Yet, I will soon know what darkness keep Where my longest period be a mystery So, in this life what a loss was sleep? Except in those dreams you were brought to me. And from them awaken though you not appear While in that final night your image may not know But, as long as I live I may find you here Instead of h...

Never Alive I heard this Robin singing so melodiously But, she is alone so only the woods and I can hear I wondered what happened to her family Would she sing more happily if they were here? And though her chords reverberated in my heart I, too, am in her isolated audience of one From my humanity and my love so far How more pleasant if from my life did not run? And if her winged family arrives to hear her sing How more buoyantly her notes will sound? For to her serenade the harm...

Sonnet 340 (Final Winter) I watch as leaves from Arbor safety fall Once swathed in summer breaths of cold now blast Their brilliant shades can’t breach the nighttime pall What seemed so long, in truth, can never last. And, so, I saw forever in a leaf Before its cradle of tranquility And learned our life’s own season is as brief While Heaven did beckon only distantly. And though the leaf did fall, the tree stood still  What fragile showed, to me, a higher plane We are like leaves...

Final Scene I was asked to write about humanity And the philandering philosophy of peace But, not enough to look around to see My Iife is given too short a lease. Wiser minds spanning this world's brief time Were better prepared to answer And, yet, theirs are not found in any rhyme Because our actions these best deliver. But, it was asked of this poet to use this page And here on what stirs us most must Iive I say we all play our parts on a cosmic stage Where our roles the fina...

The Promise of Peace Is it good or evil that our end will record Is man good or his promise spoiled? Is goodness in our heart by its own accord Or by evil's hand our nature soiled? How else ever find, on Earth, peace? First, learn what in our nature is true  As long as these battles never cease Humanity and peace an unlikely brew. How many martyrs to our higher selves known That to the greatest injustices fought? By such sacrifice the seeds of goodness sown And the hope of our ...
