Sonnet 345 (Our Love Still Grow) I should not grieve that you have gone away Instead be glad for all the joy you brought And though you're gone your memory will stay For you fulfilled the happiness I sought. And now each day still special in your wake Because this Earth was touched by our embrace And so, from each this satisfaction take I feel your heart though you have left this place. And still the Robin’s notes will sound as sweet The ocean's waves as gently roll to shore The morning’s rays t...

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...

Sonnet 344 (This World Move) The sun now shines but still not bright The day is warm but still, to me, feels cold The song bird’s notes do not on me alight So long as on this Earth your hand can’t hold. Though Roses bloom their radiance don’t see Their gardens full but, still, to me are bare The beauty only seen when you're with me And all else pales when, in your sight, compare. And life goes on but, yet, to me stands still All else may live but, now, my heart denied For all th...

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...

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...

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 ...

Sonnet 341 (Your Love Bare)    And when my final breaths are drawn from here And where such air as this don’t know I'll find I'll find the place most blessed where you appear When followed by our bodies' love entwined.   So, this the place our love best in rapture bound The consummation that our love most see I do not need to know where else it’s found Enough joy here when you are lying next to me.   So, painful that this ecstasy will not know When past the...

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...

Sonnet 339 (Time's Hand) And soon the steely hand of Time will come To coldly grasp the one who makes life sweet Now like a winter tree whose leaves succumb My life a barren place where once complete. The honeyed melodies that birds once taught Will strike the chords of loneliness in me The blissful warmth the morning sun once brought May still rise high but darkness all I'll see. Where once we lay before the ocean's shore And as we kissed the waves did gently sigh These fawning...

Last Verse  This is my last verse I will write  No use writing anything more  Even though you make my world right  Life has closed every other door.  Is love enough, then, this fact overcome? For beyond it its challenges still face  Perhaps these to your arms succumb  And will be forgotten in your embrace.  But, is there anything left when so much lost? Seeing you, only reminds how it could have been  To express what I feel not show the cost That behind lines of love painfully ...

Love is Never Altered I love you, please don't ever let me go Even when I am no longer here My love for you will always know This, not my leaving, is my only fear. Love is never by anything here altered For its spirit no earthly constraints transcend But, despite all odds, it grows undaunted Born of this earth, here will not know its end. But, an unwavering mark, like a star in the night That its fixed course never dulled or trimmed But, when the day ends is still in my s...

Sonnet 338 (The Only Certainty) Don't think you ever know what time will bring Despite what certainty you think you know For all your facts are but a fragile thing Like sturdy trees, away, the wind will blow. And even mountains, too, one day erode Today that seem, on earth, invincible But underneath their realm their end unfold To us, their majesty most visible. And ocean waves seem destined for the shore Not thinking that, one day, they will run dry But at their banks yo...
