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...

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.

A Young Spirit You promised you would return I looked up to see and there you were A sweet young spirit the cosmos would yearn Yet here you came for one heart to stir. Worlds apart, yours only beginning Mine unraveling but then I hear your voice That tells my heart the hope you are bringing That our lives we live according to our choice. I know how this violates social convention I guess people will never understand To this spirit never paid much attention But, instead...

Where Angels Sing You spoke, but your heart took over What I heard is your heart your words betray  So that propriety did not seem so sober  But, your love for me plainly say.  I wish we could tear convention apart  And let our feelings past it rise For there is no denying what is in our heart That no social pretense can disguise.  But, it seems our love must find another place  Even though, here, it seems so very clear Maybe only heaven our love grace  Only there your words ca...

Where Love Best Belong  Why did I ever doubt what you feel for me? Today, you only showed how I am insecure  Before such stakes I was afraid what could be  But, then, your words spoke of something sure. What's left is that convention must be let aside  So your words my love for you express The proof when you're lying by my side And your body and soul before me undress.  But, what I write here this page only know  When I see you again can my desires obey? For the circumstances we...

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 ...

Meant to Be I tried to let you go as painful it could be Yet, I thought, despite reservations, let you go First, it seemed that you, from me, would be free But, when I looked again your image still show. Having failed, despite wrong , I cannot try this again To see you back I will not, through such trial, undo Now. I wish what returned is only destiny's refrain That no matter what obstacles will be with you. I will wake up to see if this miracle didn't disappear I will sl...

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 ...

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...

Living Dream So tired but don't want to sleep Awake, despite how weary a chance to live While asleep no more hope I can keep My eyes better open so one more effort give. Succumbing to my dreams all I wish may come true What in this difficult world is now denied But, even if this realm brings me to you I see you In the sober morning know my dreams have lied. And though I am weary ready for this temptation Something inside of me makes me fight For it is only here I can ...

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...

Don't Go  Oh, don't go, but, wait you are not here I guess in my heart you never leave Though in this world you don't appear Not seeing you, only left to grieve.  Don't go, honey,  let my dreams be Or else in them please let me see your face If here such beauty I cannot see It does not matter in what realm you embrace.  Can you please stay around long enough to hold And not let my imagination your absence cover? Now you give what the best love stories have told  I will sacrific...

You Say You Want a Revolution? You say you want a revolution counting me out Like you don’t need this one man at all You figure you can win while I don’t count And you wonder why you always fall? 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...

Our Lot Before we reach the morning must get through the night And brave the roughest seas before finding the safety of the shore So be willing to face what is wrong to do what is right Our history made more by struggle than the peace we yearn for. For peace is not our right but comes with a cost Paid in tears, sacrifices and so much suffering But we should never think too high or all is lost It is not Heaven's hand but ours this promise bring. And the quietest days once the w...

Life Without Love I know what life without love is A poor poet struggling for tools to find Never needed when I tasted your kiss Then inspiration would never leave me behind. I could compare you to a summer's day And show how you were more fair Now this world only gets in the way And Heaven's gain, for you are there. Yes, to our love these words could be a testament And, if read, give new life to you But when I close the page you are absent Mere lines to express my love will never do. L...

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...

Forever Deep I saw this gem glistening on the ground And believed it shined for me Something so precious I had found Picking it up thinking it belonged to me. But, as of this earth, I had to give it back Something so beautiful I could not keep But for its sparkling moments did not lack The earth may reclaim, in my soul forever deep.

Only Belong to Me I saw this diamond laying on the ground While, to everyone else, did not see Perhaps only to my eyes it could be found And its beauty only belongs to me.

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...

Endless Love  You may leave me but your love can never let go  Love does not bow to the cold whims of Time  For as soon as I depart, here, to your arms go And I will abandon all my sorrow in this rhyme.  This world in all its vastness, still, a fleeting thing  And all that consumes it, one day, will die It only truly lives with the joy you bring A joy I find in whatever place, with you, I lie.  I realize that all life is but granted a lease That, here born, will ultimately expire...

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...

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...

Love You Love you, never leave you, I love you You will never know how much A love so strong dreams will never do For only in the day can I feel your touch. I love you, let me say this again and again Until the very universe runs out of space And only the robins will sing this refrain As serenaded by their melody we embrace. I love you, Time or distance can’t keep us apart For as soon as I think of you will come Nothing can come between our own heart My love to nothing else suc...

Don’t you ever think you can hide your love away Or that fickle Time could ever be your ally For Time, I know, will bring you back my way And then we both wish Time stop when, together, we lie. Like the long winter that seems forever cold Soon its steely grip must give way to the spring So that in the summer sun your body hold The harshest season soon surrender to the love you bring. And though the night has seemed only too long Where dreams are the only place you appear Soon the d...

I Do Not Want to Sleep I don’t want to sleep, to close my eyes There is something this day has not fulfilled To sleep I will lose this day what most prize Even if in dreams your image is filled. I will try to stay awake as long as I can No matter how much the night beckons me The hours may go by but make my stand I will stay in the place you are closest to me. Yet, the night's call to me is relentless I don’t know how much longer I can stay awake But, surrendering will leave me ...

Mere Words Words, conveyors of what is our mind and heart Is there anything lost in the translation? What words could I use to explain when we are apart Or is it enough that I am seen past salvation? What could I write here to show how I feel That some reader see in some future age? Not unless Time could before these moments kneel And my love for you becomes its center stage. While on a page the most moving verses written That to a man’s heart render so very close and true How c...

The End I know I am losing you but nothing I can do Only watch as you are slipping away And there is no power to get me through Either on Earth or Heaven to let you stay. What I thought of so much consequence Prove so trivial in this sad light No kingdom or its wealth of any significance If your beauty taken from my sight. But a barren world only so cold Then two graves will mark their space The one where only your memory hold And this world where nothing take your place. I ...

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...

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...

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...

I Had Love I had love like the sun had the day And the night with a beckoning moon Like the birds whose melodies our hearts sway And the oceans whose waves our hearts swoon. I had love like the meadow waiting for the rain And the mountain knowing it will touch the sky Like the rainbow whose brilliance feeds upon the rain And the gardens whose flowers make us sigh. I had love like the sky feels the wind's breeze And the flower knows it has the spring to grow Like the winter knowi...

Where Such Love Store And that I love you have made it plain  Despite the odds that I have faced  And even though Spring comes again  It only lives if your love has traced. Yet, here it is with a portending glory once more  Allowing the flowers now unbowed with brilliance straight  But most erect stands one brighter than any flower  That for this season of renewal doesn't have to wait. And the fickleness of Spring does not, my heart, dismay  When the winds come and the sky is gra...
