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 ...

The Other Side **** I saw the other side and tried to draw me in So, when I say I want to be with you why stay? Yet, I pulled back into this place but no peace win Except you saying from my family can't go away. **** I saw a white world and I knew the next place One day, I know I won't be able to fight back But I fought even when there could see your face I should have let go, maybe the courage I lack. **** Easy to say because you didn't want this to be But, tonight, I know this strength would s...

Northern Girl   I met this Northern girl but in her felt no cold I felt warm around her I only wanted her hand to hold So, our love could stir.   I think I will text her tonight Right now, I am in the mood To shake away what is right So, in the morning don’t have to brood.   Then, scared if this Northern woman doesn’t reply But when I hear back from her, I learn Why no climate can from her heart pry That love that, in my heart, burn.

Sonnet 348 (Your Radiance Show) This is the night whose stars most clearly shine Because my love the brightest of them all An earthly star, not Heaven’s, but mine Whose brilliance even angels does enthrall. And through the void your spirit I still feel No distance keeps a love like ours away And through your hold I learn all else is real The thought of you keeps my darkness far away. And so, the night can never grow too deep For on this earth the morning with you lives And when ...

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...

Life but a Dream I dreamt about you last night Again, what this world denies dreams make true Showing that this place never out of your sight And what it hides in another realm find you. And this dream stirred me to reach you here When you answered that dream became real So, the border between us should not fear For the permanency of our love reveal. And life is but a dream the bard does tell So, your beauty both realms transcend For when your love in my heart does dwell Our pa...

Love Love is an ever-fixed mark that never alteration finds But lasts past even the reaches of Time It is the essence that the universe binds And not even confined to this rhyme. No, it never bends to fickle need or passion But only feeds them, instead Once lit is the flame past all reason That is the light to where our heart is led. It is the Northern Star that guides the sailor to shore Even though the tempests threaten his vessel Guiding him past the storm and to safety’s har...

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...
