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...

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 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...

Even Worth Living So now that you have left me I am too numb to feel And afterwards will come the pain Right now nothing seems real Except not seeing you again. But sleep is coming and, so, my dreams Maybe there you will reappear But the morning will show the sun’s beams And you will not be here. I don’t know how such loss will affect me Except an empty place you once made full And tomorrow where, you, will not see In a world you made wonderful. I don’t know how I can face s...

Do Not Wade Into the Night I do not want you to wade into the night While the tide of life tries to sweep you away As long as the sun's rays are shining, for the last one, fight. For if you go into that dark sea and make that fateful flight The oceans' waves on Earth are held at bay For they can only truly flow within your sight. And this a barren world that only you make bright For its life only teems in the wake of your way The tides that rise and fall only you make right. ...

Sonnet 344 (This World Move) The sun now shines but still not bright The day is warm but still, to me, feels cold The song bird’s notes do not on me alight So long as on this Earth your hand can’t hold. Though Roses bloom their radiance don’t see Their gardens full but, still, to me are bare The beauty only seen when you're with me And all else pales when, in your sight, compare. And life goes on but, yet, to me stands still All else may live but, now, my heart denied For all th...

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...

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...

Your Kiss I tried to say goodbye but not easy to let go Anyway, what I feel, could it ever be realized? It would be some different place to show Even then would I get one I most prized? I decided I should leave your beauty For some other man to happily discover Then the wisdom of my decision you would see I could never be your lover. So, now I will go but not before you, one last time, turn To let see one that I must leave behind and miss And for what might have been will always...

Sunbeams She traipses on sunbeams like a spirit, here, free And Heaven an angel like this must surely miss And in her beauty nowhere else need to be For I am in Heaven with only her kiss. She rides rainbows until she follows the sun Their colors her aura's brilliance transcend And with the sky now clear she the only one That to the day her beauty lend. She skips so daintily across the ocean crests Like a sea nymph goddess of modern lore So to the mystery of this world she at...

The Truth of Love With the world turning around we are subjects of its turn And, if its orbit, our story is happy or sad We will not see its final revolution until we learn If our time here is one for which we should be glad. And while in its current phase know only tragedy Should this obscure the love for you here express? These sad moments only underscore the futility That mere lines of love could, in this world, not redress. Yet, despite this, I cannot escape thinking of you T...

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...

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...

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 ...

No Need for Night Where did I see you before but in a dream? Then you appeared to me the day not conceal Now nothing is as it may, at first, seem For from a dream learned what is real. Now I live in a dream every waking day To have the one, herre, whose love proves to me As I stroke her hair Heaven comes my way And on this Earth we know by such ecstasy. So, now this place a dream and no need for night For you live here and, for me, that is all As long as you are in this world's ...

Heaven Know I watch you as Heaven is reclaiming your soul But a part of it you still will leave behind So that following its trail to you, one day go So the happiness we shared, again, with you find. I am learning that our lives we merely borrow The time we spend here can never truly own For the day will come when there is no tomorrow Except in a realm where only dreams are sown. And I will see you there, my love, where dreams are true And though you leave now will never be truly...

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...

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...

Our Love Here Gives Why do you have to go before my eyes Can’t mine close so this pain can’t feel? But, powerless losing what I most prize And Time is indifferent to who it will steal. I can see you looking into the next realm But, I know don’t want to leave this behind Yet, a force fighting your spirit overwhelm As I stand helpless for some strength to find. And each day only brings you closer, still Dreading that final one that takes you away That day of loss nothing here can ...

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...

No Road too Lonely No road too winding or long if you're with me And even the one less traveled only needs you I don't need to take a chance or the unknown see All I need is you by my side to know what is true. No day is too distant or ever too dark Not when you are there to provide the light And no night is so deep but sees your spark So from the abyss your hand takes me in flight. I see the gardens and think for me don't blossom But, then you show and are the fairest flo...

When in your Arms And any instruments chords only appreciated through you For the music they make is our rhapsody Or else their sounds through my heart can’t break through For even your simplest words sound the finest melody. And any flowers that grow need more than the spring But our romance the fertile field they best grow And as splendid the rose not equal to the beauty you bring And the most decorated gardens pale to the splendor you show. And when the summer comes its warmth ...

Shall I simply wallow in this wasted rhyme Or make sure you never leave my sight? **** No, next time I will not let you, so easily, go My affection, I will have to admit, is real Your love, wherever you are, want to know And y...

The Reason I see you in the sun’s rays that on this earth fall In the clouds that decorate the sky I hear you in the birdsongs that your melody call And in the ocean waves that make me sigh. I feel you in the warmth the spring does bring I see you in the flowers that begin to grow I fly with you with the birds that take wing To the warmth of your love that will know. This world can turn but its journey not complete And the sun that it circles not the true center For it is with y...

Now you give what the best love stories have told  I will sacrific...

But, why complain, who's going to listen to me anyway? Well, I can write for another audience This world won't give me the time of day Maybe who listens to me has a better conscience.  Wow, my cup empty, time for a refill I guess no answers even as it gets empty Unti...

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.

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...

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...

Last Verse  This is my last verse I will write  No use writing anything more  Even though you make my world right  Life has closed every other door.  Is love enough, then, this fact overcome? For beyond it its challenges still face  Perhaps these to your arms succumb  And will be forgotten in your embrace.  But, is there anything left when so much lost? Seeing you, only reminds how it could have been  To express what I feel not show the cost That behind lines of love painfully ...

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...

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 ...

My Love It is dark but you are still my star I will soon sleep but in my dreams you will be And though from this world wander far Never so far that you're not next to me. It is cold but you are still my sun And in the colder winter such warmth you bring And alienated from society you the only one When this world is dull in my heart you sing. When my conceptions today’s events confuse And doubt the constancy that fills my soul Your steadfast love these feelings will refuse...

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...

Reborn My emotional investment in you is all I can give In no other can my feelings share If you go in an empty place must live To only one woman my soul bare. I know this you may, to me, refute Isn’t love something our lives surprise? But my heart this argument will dispute For ever broken should you close your eyes. This is the wrong time of year for this to face But is there ever a good time for love to leave? Still, Spring is the season where new life embrace Instead, where...

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...
