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...

Distant Star Your love is no closer than the most distant star Yet, everywhere I look there you are Then again, from a star’s essence we all made Why should I ever fear that from my life you would fade? Except that you are not here by my side I have to console myself that you’re in my soul Let the poets write how Time this separation abide I would rather your breath on my body know. Yes, I can think of you and, so, are never truly away And in my dreams your image can sweetly appear But,...

My Heart Should Know I saw a glittering object on the ground one day Attracted, I picked it up to get a closer look But the sun started to fade, the sky turned gray In my hand stood this dull stone my fancy mistook. I can only wait for the sun to soon return And its brilliance to once again, in the day, glow Until then for what stirred my heart must yearn Maybe it's not this stone but my heart should know.

    Never Mine I saw a stone glittering but not for me Yet, for anyone else its brilliance see In this world not meant for such treasure Despite its beauty denied such pleasure. So, this stone does not, for all, shine Even its most colorful rays not mine With its hues so vibrant and bold  Never meant for me to hold. So, why am I teased by its brilliant array If not meant for me to stay? Shall I be content only knowing its there While its facets for me will not bare? So, ...

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...

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...

I Saw a Rose Is saw a Rose as I was walking one Spring day Winter's radiant rebuttal flowering so regally Like the beauty you brought my way Knowing after the coldest days you came to me. However, soon the Rose's petals start to fall Such glory cannot long live What I thought lasting nature's rule befall Not long does life such delight give. And how fleeting this Rose I should have realized What I held dearest would soon go It does not matter how much it is prized Too quickly w...

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.

Meant to Be I tried to let you go as painful it could be Yet, I thought, despite reservations, let you go First, it seemed that you, from me, would be free But, when I looked again your image still show. Having failed, despite wrong , I cannot try this again To see you back I will not, through such trial, undo Now. I wish what returned is only destiny's refrain That no matter what obstacles will be with you. I will wake up to see if this miracle didn't disappear I will sl...

Empty Page This page is blank where I have to write about you What should I fill it with, what metaphors  will impress? What techniques to express what in my heart true? I would rather keep this empty if your love to me undress. Shall I care that these lines past our lives survive That when read by others to posterity grow? But, what matters most is when you are here alive I don’t care what some future readers know. I might fill this canvass where you best rendered And the colors...

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 ...

Only There for Me  I saw this stone he sun gave in its best light But, soon the night its facets will not show  Is it enough that dreams put it in sight  And its full brilliance then know. It is only in the day its value realize  And the sun’s rays make clear That in its light, past dreams, most prize How much better you are here.  You are the diamond that dimensions transcend  Your brilliance rivaling the stars that shine  And, so the night can only your beauty send The heaven...
