If Not Mine Goodbye my love, though this pains me to write My best lines I can only look back to see For then you were in my sight And could wish you were with me. But, now, I must sadly realize I can only tell what I will miss Empty lines without this prize That would be sealed with your kiss. That is why from the page stay away Only the haven where hope occupy If with me no chance you will stay No use if with me you will not lie. So, I should understand and let you go And...

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 ...

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...

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. ...

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...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

Your Light Your light cannot go out on me Or else the darkness should have remained For if you go it will be all I see Better no light known so my heart not pained. Like the universe without the sun What life could exist around? All its planets dead without that shining one For only from its essence is their life found. Like the Mariner without his guiding Star Stranded at sea unable to find the shore But needs its radiance no matter how far That brings him to a place where h...

Muse (For Ariana) I saw an angel tonight and her wings her voice That transported us to a heavenly place With a charm that we saw why Heaven's choice To let us enjoy what there embrace. And the birdsongs would envy her melody For she in even more soothing notes sing To prove that, in this world, there is still harmony And with her song this peace did bring. The world follows this earthly Muse’s lead For this inner music does feed our soul The common chords of life that we all ne...

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 ...

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...
