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. ...

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...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

Your Light Your light cannot go out on me Or else the darkness should have remained For if you go it will be all I see Better no light known so my heart not pained. Like the universe without the sun What life could exist around? All its planets dead without that shining one For only from its essence is their life found. Like the Mariner without his guiding Star Stranded at sea unable to find the shore But needs its radiance no matter how far That brings him to a place where h...

Muse (For Ariana) I saw an angel tonight and her wings her voice That transported us to a heavenly place With a charm that we saw why Heaven's choice To let us enjoy what there embrace. And the birdsongs would envy her melody For she in even more soothing notes sing To prove that, in this world, there is still harmony And with her song this peace did bring. The world follows this earthly Muse’s lead For this inner music does feed our soul The common chords of life that we all ne...

I Do Not Want to Sleep I don’t want to sleep, to close my eyes There is something this day has not fulfilled To sleep I will lose this day what most prize Even if in dreams your image is filled. I will try to stay awake as long as I can No matter how much the night beckons me The hours may go by but make my stand I will stay in the place you are closest to me. Yet, the night's call to me is relentless I don’t know how much longer I can stay awake But, surrendering will leave me ...

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...

Don’t you ever think you can hide your love away Or that fickle Time could ever be your ally For Time, I know, will bring you back my way And then we both wish Time stop when, together, we lie. Like the long winter that seems forever cold Soon its steely grip must give way to the spring So that in the summer sun your body hold The harshest season soon surrender to the love you bring. And though the night has seemed only too long Where dreams are the only place you appear Soon the d...

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...

I Had Love I had love like the sun had the day And the night with a beckoning moon Like the birds whose melodies our hearts sway And the oceans whose waves our hearts swoon. I had love like the meadow waiting for the rain And the mountain knowing it will touch the sky Like the rainbow whose brilliance feeds upon the rain And the gardens whose flowers make us sigh. I had love like the sky feels the wind's breeze And the flower knows it has the spring to grow Like the winter knowi...

Loveless Life I loved you but it was too much to ask This earth from a miracle made this will reject All else must seek their own miracle, too much a task Such bliss from this place should not expect. So, where once I saw the universe in your eyes I look around and a despoiled place instead So, this is where what was ordained paradise It was, but only fulfilled where your love led. Now, I am helplessly watching as you go Cold Time, why do you have to take her away Could you let ...

Better Played What happens when your last breath will leave Did I ever think it could be otherwise? Do I even care from this fate a reprieve I think I couldn’t ask unless this gift did realize. Even then, I am only a mortal man on a lease Though during its term didn’t think it would end I would like to leave while my mind at peace But I would lie and every fairy tale offend. Then I be should be grateful for the final curtain Of my life’s play where only tragedy has been staged A...

Worth the Try I lost you and all I lost is life Not so urgent when you are gone How trivial its triumphs and its strife When hoping my days are not long. Doesn’t matter I awake in the morning What would I do with the rest of the day Spend it over your memory mourning? Then it is better I am out of the way. I feel death all around me but it’s cowardly It leaves me to only feel its cold breath I know only too well what it asks of me I could oblige, if only I knew love's breadth. ...

I love you, let me say this again and again Until the very universe runs out of space And only the robins will sing this refrain As serenaded by their melody we embrace. I love you, Time or distance can’t keep us apart For as soon as I think of you will come Nothing can come between our own heart My love to nothing else suc...

Your Love Bare Can I think I will forget your memory? Like saying I will forget in the morning the sun will shine But before the sun’s rays your image come to me And the day only complete if you are mine. The days have passed and I can only pretend That all the life around you still matters I do my best to its calling my attention lend Until the thought of you this pretense shatters. So, what was I thinking after all To forget what my heart most move? Easier to forget that the n...

In this Rhyme With your spirit gone what else remain? This world cannot its riches boast For a jewel in sorrow's light but plain When Life takes what you love the most. I am but Death undone, an empty shell A ghost where once my blood did flow And doomed this lonely world to dwell This burial ground no other death need know. The most vivid sounds I hear but mute to me Its brightest colors are only coldly dull The only taste I have is for eternity To take me from this place Life...

A Lovers Pact You cannot leave my soul behind For no happiness in this place will know And where I look such love will not find So where you are I will long to go. The measure of my life the moments share Empty if from this place you depart Then the world still turning but I won’t care For with all its wealth still missing your heart. And I cannot imagine a life without your love In fact, that would not be living at all For every breath I take only my loneliness prove Only wait...

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.

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...

What Is? What is that sound that serenades my soul? Not the bird's song that shares its melody But your soothing voice that in my heart does grow That whispers your sweet love for me. What is that twinkling in the night? Not the stars that point so far away But your eyes in which I bask in your sight That beckons me to your world to stay. What is that motion that makes my heart yearn? Not the Earth that around the Sun does move But the way you walk that makes my head turn And m...

Sonnet 343 (Your Love) How sweet your voice that lightens up my day When robins sing your chords their notes inspire A perfect melody their music play Arousing in this man still more desire. How wonderful your eyes that stir my soul I look into as mirrors of your heart And this day's light, through them, does clearly show I learn that, from your sight, can’t live apart. How heavenly your walk is on Earth's land Massaging fawning breezes in your wake Your spritely sway where my s...

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 ...

Buried in this Rhyme I saw you tonight and my sun only fed By the fire that, in you, burns And this earth is only our bed To fulfill what our heart yearns. How many times can I say I need you How many lines here this can express? Over and over until they are through And nothing more I need confess. The years go by and, yet, here remain How many more must go by? Yet, I would forsake poetry for what is plain And trade it if, alongside you, I lie. Yet, how much longer see you i...

And tonight I will sleep alone one more time Not say I hope to see you in a dream But pour my sadness in this plaintive rhyme I may sleep but the morning sun without you gleam. And I have another day to face without you here Not say that my love preserved if someone read But say t...

My Life Fulfill No emperor so powerful or king so strong That his empire would gladly give So he could claim the love he so long That no wealth or power in equal measure give. No priest or prophet's faith so fixed That on this Earth can dismiss its love For its embodiment in you even Heaven transfixed And Faith’s own foundation your beauty prove. No Robin that sings the sweetest melody Or ocean wave that curtsies to the moon Can sound the notes of your rhapsody While the cosmos...

Need You Here I can’t do better in this verse Than write lines to your love There is nothing worse Than what my heart can’t prove. I don’t know if this will do To show, here, what I feel Except that I need you What else is there to reveal? I don’t want, this night, to sleep Dreams are gone in the morning All I want is you to keep Why else is this world turning? Here I am while you are gone Painful when so far away I need you, here, to go on I need you, in my life, to stay...
