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...

    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 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...

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...

A Young Spirit You promised you would return I looked up to see and there you were A sweet young spirit the cosmos would yearn Yet here you came for one heart to stir. Worlds apart, yours only beginning Mine unraveling but then I hear your voice That tells my heart the hope you are bringing That our lives we live according to our choice. I know how this violates social convention I guess people will never understand To this spirit never paid much attention But, instead...

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.

No Time for Vanity  So to time is cruel with its hand  Because no time for our vanities  At least long enough here to stand To show our vainglorious trivialities. But, thought the stage of perfection  Where the world would bend to our will Then an invisible force introduces oblivion  While this world stubbornly refuses to stand still.  Never a part of what was our infallible plan That all would bend to our quest for control  That civilization only before our power stand  Sudden...

Only Live in Dreaming This is my home, a blank page But fuller than the world so shallow Here I can present a different stage Whose last act does not end in sorrow. I can fill this with lines that warm my soul That tell of love everlasting And forget the place where it never know For only happiness here am casting. To create my Venus, to adorn my night Not a frenzied place, still, so empty Here her heaven within my sight And forget, here, you will never be with me. This canv...

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.

Don't Go  Oh, don't go, but, wait you are not here I guess in my heart you never leave Though in this world you don't appear Not seeing you, only left to grieve.  Don't go, honey,  let my dreams be Or else in them please let me see your face If here such beauty I cannot see It does not matter in what realm you embrace.  Can you please stay around long enough to hold And not let my imagination your absence cover? Now you give what the best love stories have told  I will sacrific...

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...

Sonnet 342 (Your Love I Know) The boughs are bare where late the birds once sang And, too, the garden cold where flowers grew And gone the warmth the day too me once brang Those sunny days that I had spent with you. And darkness falls where once the day so bright The night too quickly ushered in its place This world is best when in your eyes alight And winter thawing where your beauty trace. And you the sun where my own soul does live Like birds that always sing their melody So ...

Life Without Love I know what life without love is A poor poet struggling for tools to find Never needed when I tasted your kiss Then inspiration would never leave me behind. I could compare you to a summer's day And show how you were more fair Now this world only gets in the way And Heaven's gain, for you are there. Yes, to our love these words could be a testament And, if read, give new life to you But when I close the page you are absent Mere lines to express my love will never do. L...

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...

The Promise of Peace Is it good or evil that our end will record Is man good or his promise spoiled? Is goodness in our heart by its own accord Or by evil's hand our nature soiled? How else ever find, on Earth, peace? First, learn what in our nature is true  As long as these battles never cease Humanity and peace an unlikely brew. How many martyrs to our higher selves known That to the greatest injustices fought? By such sacrifice the seeds of goodness sown And the hope of our ...

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...

Only Belong to Me I saw this diamond laying on the ground While, to everyone else, did not see Perhaps only to my eyes it could be found And its beauty only belongs to me.

Endless Love  You may leave me but your love can never let go  Love does not bow to the cold whims of Time  For as soon as I depart, here, to your arms go And I will abandon all my sorrow in this rhyme.  This world in all its vastness, still, a fleeting thing  And all that consumes it, one day, will die It only truly lives with the joy you bring A joy I find in whatever place, with you, I lie.  I realize that all life is but granted a lease That, here born, will ultimately expire...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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...
