Truly Live I go to a church and the priest's sermon can’t reach you I look up at the stars and you are not there I stand by a river stream but it only passes through I hear a love song but no more sings about you. I read lines written about lost love but still a tragedy I open the blinds but the sun doesn’t come in The sun shines for everyone else but me The day has ended before it begin. I walk down a country road but no peace I find The solitude only adds to my isolation I lis...

Sorrow in Your Memory Sweet Do you see the loved ones you left behind? Will, one day, we again will meet? Is it there true happiness find? Then I wish these earthly tethers no longer bind I know that here my life incomplete And life cannot be, to me, so unkind. So, I look to my final days to unwind Until my mortal place Time unseat And from sorrow no more aligned. Can you see the tears from hearts that pined? Will they dry before your feet? From s heart where love always shin...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

Only Through Your Love What seemed eternal lasts but a day That comes and makes you realize That nothing so precious can’t be taken away And even Oblivion can’t dull my cries. I wish that Time came for me, instead For without you the sun has left its home But if Time took me Death only once led Instead, left in the darkness to roam. Like a Rose that stands in her gardenly attire It seems this floral home everlasting If I could only have frozen such desire So that beauty lasts, ...

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. ...
