To Stay  A new place, another chapter to be written  The contents of which I am unsure  But I hope my role is fitting  For a man who has already too much to endure.  This final part I play I wonder who will decide If it even cares about my past  For will it to my hopes or to fate abide And if the right players cast.  But here my will and  fate can agree There is one way to happily conclude this play And if fate doesn’t decide on tragedy  That my love returns to me to stay.

No Love can Last  A flawed person can never make a perfect decision  Any more than the tides can move the moon  For there must be a purity for perfection  Where different chords can sing the same tune. I don’t want to get up to a world where you are gone  How can I go on where love is lost?  Like this world’s melody needs your song Or else its chords its music lost. And hard to look for perfection in an imperfect race  Any more than a summer without the sun No warmth can feel in...

Time is Never Enough  Time is something we think we have but never enough  What seems lasting only briefly last  And that this is true our mortality proof  So, whatever we do under Time’s shadow cast.  If you see a Rose please don’t pass it by But stop and enjoy its beauty  For it grows in splendor for you to eye  But if you pass it by may no longer see.  Enjoy the melody that the Robin sing  Her notes come only briefly for this time of year  She comes so to your heart comfort b...

Words Words are meaningless unless spoken from the heart If not, they are empty and lead to heartbreak What I believed now tears my heart apart Not caring for the next daybreak. Speaking from your heart can be a weakness You lay bare to the world your soul Hoping you have found happiness Where false words can never go. Now I am stuck here, nowhere to turn But with only words to express my pain The same ones that lifted me, now for happy ones yearn That this loss can in my heart...

Forever Mine  Where can I see you if not here? The sun shining down says there In her starry realm you appear At least I know you are in Heaven’s care. But how will I fill my world when you are gone? When shadows of our life only know? But now to a higher realm you belong The one for which I now long to go. But, yet, these days until then still empty So, for what reason should I stay? Maybe your memories enough to get me by And remembering our love points the way. I should b...

Always Stay  I saw this Rose today in all her splendor  If only that moment was forever  Her beauty wouldn’t have to remember  So to no season it would surrender.  If only her radiance to time preserved  And could bask in it every day  So, her short stay here well served And nothing else stands in her way.  She was magnificent in her pink attire  Dressing my day in the brightest hue  Such beauty time should never retire Like those memories I have of you.  And you are that Ro...

Words of Love There’s nothing to write about, nothing to say  The one I loved has gone away So, this emptiness is all I know And without your love will only grow.  And nothing to live for, nothing without you  You were the only reason I knew  Now I have nothing my heart move  And nothing more here to prove. But I go on living, nothing more Going through the motions, once out the door Facing a crowded world still empty It was only full when you were with me. Yet I cannot forc...

Why Should I Care? Sitting in a world of illusion, a ball of confusion  Not that it matters to me My love has gone,  left me forlorn  Now I long to be free. This world is cascading, turning then fading But why should I care? For you went away, now only my sorrow stay And for happiness don’t dare. And the world upside down, inside out and around  But long ago stopped planning the game  For anything good only where you are found  Long ago never the same. I read the news today,...

Something Higher  It looks like something unsettling to see But, some people tell me I’m wrong  Rather deny something we supposed reality Than admit to the community we belong.  Then let this hidden enemy go unchecked  So, who fought it did so in vain  And the chain of life wrecked  From our baser instincts didn’t refrain.  Still, for the greatest number give hope  There is a genius that in them resides  So, for the most difficult challenges cope Now for this goodness must take...

Love Love is an ever-fixed mark that never alteration finds But lasts past even the reaches of Time It is the essence that the universe binds And not even confined to this rhyme. No, it never bends to fickle need or passion But only feeds them, instead Once lit is the flame past all reason That is the light to where our heart is led. It is the Northern Star that guides the sailor to shore Even though the tempests threaten his vessel Guiding him past the storm and to safety’s har...

In My Heart Will Stay  Don’t you know that you can never leave? You can never be too far away  Then I should never grieve For your love, in my heart, will always stay.  And this world better because you were here Without you much emptier would have been  Those years you gave me will never disappear  And those that remain your memory will win. So, I should not wallow but instead be glad For love like ours is never truly lost And be grateful for the happiness we had Thinking of t...

This Rose Gives  I saw this woman holding a flower in her hand The sun smiled down at this sight Beauty with beauty it could understand  All it needed was to give them her light.  It was a natural fit I could certainly agree  And the world around was their garden  They in the center of it for me to see Under the sun that called me to awaken.  Should I approach her to say what I feel? The sun beckoned me to do so But from this moment should this beauty steal? Maybe it is too muc...

Nothing More this World Gives  Your hair brushes back the gentle wind So that the world your beauty knows Gentler still after your presence find So, everything it touches your love grows. Your eyes give this world its finest sight  So that everything seen through your heart And everything clearer in your light So that from your gaze I will never be apart. And the oceans ebb and flow in your wake Your draw is more powerful than the moon It is from your influence my heart take  S...

Meant for You   Young spirit, do you know who you are to me? From when a man first drew his breath you were there In a pristine world one beauty he wanted to see Where everything new, nothing else as fair.   You are that spirit around which this world turn The purpose that gives its fullest meaning Without you nothing else for which to yearn And nothing else on earth worth learning.   The spring can only come into full bloom in your light You are its faires...

Where Our Love Lives  You came back into my dreams last night  I guess your memory can't forget You may be gone but never out of sight And these days your absence never whet.  I awoke but back into this dream returned This is where I want to live Better than awake where love is only yearned The darkness has so much more to give. Once again awake, then back to sleep for that is where our love is found If only I could stay and it would keep  At least here for the night I am bou...

Something Learned   I saw a robin singing ushering in the spring But something else was in the air For in this season of rebirth something else on the wing And now the cherry blossoms not as fair.   How cruel to finally pass the winter cold To see each day longer grow That through the warmth something chilling take hold To temper spring’s beauty, we have come to know.   As if to teach us our expectations can be overturned Nothing we know can ever be taken f...

Now Belong   I thought there was little left in life to know And then there is you Beauty picks no time to know But in your spirit passes through.   But while the world dark you make bright And my own night delay For I see Heaven in your sight No need to go that way.   Then all I need do is in your sight stay All the beauty I need is here Maybe Heaven let you get away So, you, my angel, are always near.   I thought life, little else, to me could...

Sonnet 347 (From these Lines) The rain may fall and, too, the wind may blow But, still, inside my heart the sun does shine Because our love you let the world now know And now don't need to live within this rhyme. And like the sun that, soon, will find the day What burns inside can’t long remain so far And your own warmth you brought along my way That love I feel no darkness, here, can bar.  Our secret, here, could hardly have been kept The passion that we share is much too strong...

Life With Your Love  And what do I write for, what do I live for, without you? The sun, at least, has this world to awake But, to me, the day is already through  And I am dark before the night does break.  Without you, what else on this page fill? Talk of the Spring bringing the bird’s song? I should because our love’s rebirth does fulfill And the summer will come before long.  You are why I even write these lines at all Without you, no use for this blank page The loftiest lines...

Always Embraced   Here I am with this laptop instead of a pen or quill And its keyboard for its strokes impressed here But this should not be a barrier to a poet’s skill Another medium for our art to appear.   But my theme will remain the same Despite what means I use it to convey My love for you will, instead, appear in this frame But beyond here I wish in your heart stay.   A new way to express what is old The love I have that is still new No matter th...

Young Spirit   Young spirit, I will let you to your life go You have too much to offer And my world could never know Let you share yours with another.   But you know this, I have learned Still, I see you stay Why such beauty have I earned When you could have gone your way?   Another teenage infatuation That is all this must be Another must know your affection It was never meant for me.   But, young spirit, your beauty here confide I am glad t...

Even Heaven Teach  Don’t think Time has separated you from me Or that distance can do the same thing  That is saying love is never meant to be  And never to me such fulfillment does bring.  This Earth is only Heaven’s proving ground  To see if our passion to its home elevate  Then no more proof than our love found  I only wish for you it could only wait.  When you were here found paradise  Nowhere else needed to be  All I needed to do is look into your eyes And you were the ang...

No Enemy can Break our Heart (Inspired by Tijah Hadijah Ahmmed)   That we are one in this world we should already know And should not take anything to prove But that it does our vulnerability show And what unseen our humanity will move.   And to combat this another invisible force The faith for our kind to persevere And that we should survive it enforce Learning that for each other are we here.   This battle is now waged and will overcome For faith is the s...
