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...

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 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 ...

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 ...

Melody **** Let me make this simple and brief Like the birds who sing naturally Since you left Time has been a thief Stealing those moments you were next to me. **** For everyone else this Earth their playground Where their fantasies on this stage play But this stage only empty if you’re not around But what a romantic play if you only did stay. **** There are heaving oceans and brilliant meadows Roads travelled and where few have tread Where the Raven beckons behind the shado...

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...

Death's Second Self This mythical fascination with immortality I believe each moment here is precious Though I know Death will stop for me Then the life I live here most relish. When that time comes and I must leave I wish my time here remembered well Though those left behind for me may grieve The example I left, I wish, lives on to tell. No need to hope this earth no limits give The time it allows is enough for me I am grateful for those moments it lets me live Though there ma...

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...

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 346 (Your Love did Meet) Shall I still mourn the loss my heat does know Like days that miss the notes that birds did sing? Or like the Spring your love in my heart grow And keep the warmth that once to me did bring. Shall I forget the times your beauty knew Like that sweet rose the cold its petals shed? Or like the sun your essence still shine through And no day dark but bright where your love led. Shall I go on but grateful for your love Like summers known before the wi...

To Stay  A new place, another chapter to be written  The contents of which I am unsure  But I hope my role is fitting  For a man who has already too much to endure.  This final part I play I wonder who will decide If it even cares about my past  For will it to my hopes or to fate abide And if the right players cast.  But here my will and  fate can agree There is one way to happily conclude this play And if fate doesn’t decide on tragedy  That my love returns to me to stay.

Sonnet 351 (Only Come from You) What sound I hear that whispers in the air? An angel's voice that found an earthly ear So sweet I need not climb to Heaven's stair For with such chords is Heaven singing here. Yet, 'round I look and nothing do I see A spirit, then, must be the reason why I cannot touch but yet envelops me My cares erase and draws from me a sigh. The trees before such melody do dance The river's flow reflects its rhythmic sound That nature bends and shakes to such ...
