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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

How Much Treasured  So, that life is short we all know  But this does not lessen its impact Our faith tells us there is someplace else to go But, that you will not be here a fact. Now I learn that your lease here soon expire And your debtor your time here will collect  But forfeiting this also takes my desire I would have other terms that I could select . But, too late now, the judgment has come  As I look at you, I must face this fact That to your mortality will soon succumb  ...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

Worth the Try I lost you and all I lost is life Not so urgent when you are gone How trivial its triumphs and its strife When hoping my days are not long. Doesn’t matter I awake in the morning What would I do with the rest of the day Spend it over your memory mourning? Then it is better I am out of the way. I feel death all around me but it’s cowardly It leaves me to only feel its cold breath I know only too well what it asks of me I could oblige, if only I knew love's breadth. ...

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...

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...

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...

Sonnet 341 (Your Love Bare)    And when my final breaths are drawn from here And where such air as this don’t know I'll find I'll find the place most blessed where you appear When followed by our bodies' love entwined.   So, this the place our love best in rapture bound The consummation that our love most see I do not need to know where else it’s found Enough joy here when you are lying next to me.   So, painful that this ecstasy will not know When past the...

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...

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...
