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...

My Heart Grown I thought that you were a lost sun Lost in the illumination of the cosmos But I realized, for me, you were the one  And the universe was your host. I don’t think you were ever far away  Maybe my paranoia got the best of me  Love like yours is meant to stay  And yours is always there for me.  But I gave up believing you were gone  When you were always there  Sometimes what we believe is wrong If from our lives love scare.  But your heart, for me, was always min...

Delusion Where is my beer?  Oh, over there next to me? I guess I got lost in thought Wait, this Corona going down satisfyingly So, I can say this why I forgot. I am glad I am so comfortably numb Let the discerners know these lines’ source But, writing here about one to whom I succumb Love’s passion poetry can best enforce. Wait, let me have another Corona’s sip So much better tasting with some lime Yet, I must let the one I care for slip At least I can preserve her in this rh...

There is Nothing More   I am learning what it is to live without love Each day is empty and am getting numb To pine over my loss nothing will prove Still, to darkness, again, succumb.   Shouldn’t each day erase your memory? Doesn’t Time put its distance in the way? But not in the dreams where you come to me And in their most beautiful climes we lay. And in the notes of birds who sing your songs To the gentle breeze that calls out your name To the stars where our romance always bel...

Province of Love    Let not Earth separate what Heaven can keep together  Or time here is far too brief  Why not look to where love lasts forever?  And then know there is a place past grief.    Our lives here are but candles but too quickly burn  And then must find another light  Once the last embers die for you will yearn  There must be another place your beauty alight.    And our love is like the brightest star  That while here beckons from above  So, ...

Your Love Frees You are what makes the sun rise and set right And this world can continue its journey They must obey what you bring to light That your love they must first see. You are the chords behind what birds sing And so, they can continue their songs For their melody from your spirit bring And to their song your beauty belongs. You are what makes the moon shine So, the stars can their accompaniment play Showing Heaven that, here, you are mine And that it only belongs wher...

Northern Girl   I met this Northern girl but in her felt no cold I felt warm around her I only wanted her hand to hold So, our love could stir.   I think I will text her tonight Right now, I am in the mood To shake away what is right So, in the morning don’t have to brood.   Then, scared if this Northern woman doesn’t reply But when I hear back from her, I learn Why no climate can from her heart pry That love that, in my heart, burn.

In These Lines Know   Here is where I can express my love for you For in this world what I feel must hide At least in these lines my love will prove And my passion’s rule will abide.   Here I can hold your hand and your lips kiss We can lay by the river’s edge in love’s embrace While outside this rhyme my dreams miss You live best here, outside an empty place.   In these lines we can reach the heights of ecstasy Like a Rose’s beauty nurtured by the sun ...

It is You There is someone here that I find so fine I wonder does she know how I feel? Can I ask her will she be my Valentine? Are these words here enough to make it real? But it would be so hard my feelings to let her know So, maybe it is better I leave them longing here Then if I see her my affection would have to show Oh, to see her close my reservations disappear. I wonder if she reads this she knows who she is? I have written so many romantic rhymes before She certainly cou...

You Will be My Lover  I am trying my best but can’t forget you Because you are the sun calling me And past the clouds of my loneliness shine through But I still can’t let it be. This, to myself, is what I always say And sometimes I may succeed Then through a Blue Jay’s notes you come my way And I realize your melody in my life I need. But, then again, I realize we are worlds apart And these thoughts chase out of my mind Then you become the wind caressing my heart Nothing more s...

Sonnet 346 (Your Love did Meet) Shall I still mourn the loss my heat does know Like days that miss the notes that birds did sing? Or like the Spring your love in my heart grow And keep the warmth that once to me did bring. Shall I forget the times your beauty knew Like that sweet rose the cold its petals shed? Or like the sun your essence still shine through And no day dark but bright where your love led. Shall I go on but grateful for your love Like summers known before the wi...

More Swiftly your Fall Remember the days when "Love is All You Need"? Those sit ins on the Boston Common looking for a better way? From our concern for humanity we succumbed to greed So, again, The role of the revolutionary we have to play. From a nation united to one divided we have become And the winds of a new civil war are brewing From this battle no one can hide and no one run We must understand that history is now calling. And the architects of our constitution would be di...

Never Far That I knew your love should carry me through The happiness I felt should always stay At least I can say your love in my life once grew And its roots still grow though you’re away. My life is richer because you were here And what I lost cannot compare Love lost still admits it was here And lost does not mean any less fair. What we had Time can never erase Though it took you away from me For everywhere I look see your face And from Time’s hold always free. ...

Measure of Love Doesn’t the morning follow the night? So should the darkness seem so deep? For when I leave, you, again, will be in sight So the darkness, here, my sorrow cannot keep. Should the morning take you from my dreams? So the time with you, in them, mislead? I await that final morn when your aspect gleams To the place of peace your love has always led. Should this world keep you away from me? And so only your absence will know? No, one day from its hold be free Love...

My Heart Only Longs Her hair flowed like a celestial stairway to the sun Beckoning me follow its waves to where angels go But I did not need to climb for she was the only one And caressing her hair the only pleasure I needed to know. And the birds surrounded us and chimed in delight By the lake where we lay and the wind by our side Then gazing into her eyes my heart took flight To where paradise awaits the passion of love's tide. Her hair, flowing, to show me on Earth such ecst...

No One Else There is no one else I care to love I had one to show that it’s true After you, nothing left to prove The only love here I found in you. What are the rest of my days for? To go on without what makes them real? I will always look for something more For that one where love can feel. But, this I am left with now you are gone A life, without you, no purpose knows In your arms, instead, should belong This is where my happiness grows. There is no one else to take y...

And this dream stirred me to reach you here When you answered that dream became real So, the border between us should not fear For the permanency of our love reveal. And life is but a dream the bard does tell So, your beauty both realms transcend For when your love in my heart does dwell Our pa...

But you are here I cannot deny But you will find another’s arms For the lucky one by your side lie I am not the one for your charms. I know I can see your beauty And how much it will grow But it is not meant for me It is for another to know. Your future is bright, that is true My last embers are dying You hold the last ...

Your Love All I Need There is only one person this verse belongs to Or an empty page this would be These simple lines are dedicated to you And your beauty through them the world will see. You are the reason poets, their lofty lines, write Why the artists, their canvas, with beauty, fill Why the dreamers long for the starry night To find the source of all, here, wonderful. You are the reason my dreams are so sweet For in them our love does still passionately live And why the m...

Living World I walked passed a glittering stone one day Attracted to it, I picked it up and held it in my hand Away from the light the glitter went away My stone was only a jewel if under the sun stand. And so, I held it in the sun's direction So, this plain stone a jewel could be Perhaps this is like our affection Only when the light is right our love can see. And then I laid this store back onto the ground So, when its light was right, attract other passersby The sun must ha...
