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...

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...

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. ...

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...

Never Alive I heard this Robin singing so melodiously But, she is alone so only the woods and I can hear I wondered what happened to her family Would she sing more happily if they were here? And though her chords reverberated in my heart I, too, am in her isolated audience of one From my humanity and my love so far How more pleasant if from my life did not run? And if her winged family arrives to hear her sing How more buoyantly her notes will sound? For to her serenade the harm...

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...

Sunbeams She traipses on sunbeams like a spirit, here, free And Heaven an angel like this must surely miss And in her beauty nowhere else need to be For I am in Heaven with only her kiss. She rides rainbows until she follows the sun Their colors her aura's brilliance transcend And with the sky now clear she the only one That to the day her beauty lend. She skips so daintily across the ocean crests Like a sea nymph goddess of modern lore So to the mystery of this world she at...

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...

For What May I Yearn? I have known life’s brief lease Delivered from darkness and to it return Here, I could gauge my peace But around its borders for what may I yearn? Yet, I will soon know what darkness keep Where my longest period be a mystery So, in this life what a loss was sleep? Except in those dreams you were brought to me. And from them awaken though you not appear While in that final night your image may not know But, as long as I live I may find you here Instead of h...

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...

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 ...

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 ...
