We reach out to the skies
a morning sunrise
is our only grasp of an energy
we once could feel
against the skin of our
alive with a passion,
a sensory magic that could
We would soon know,
there are truths
to the mystique of love,
we held on,
her in my arms,
eyes that might entertain,
a world well beyond
our immediate grasp.
Would we ever
know a horizon
shared in one.
I once followed a shadow,
waiting with an earnest
a wish to know,
to hear, to see,
a vision of a memory in my

to carry on.
One day in the autumn,
a calendar of certain
I did watch the image
of a woman,
walk quiet inside my world,
my immediate presence,
it was there
my world immediately changed
forever in the sweet peace …
Though she may be beyond my reach,
there is a moon,
reflective in its natural state.
We share a luminosity,
while waiting in the silence,
for our next rising sun.
We try to suggest we own,
the feeling of love,
oh, I do love you,
I love you so much,
all my love,
I will love you forever,
I love the notion of …
It will test our ability to understand,
to recognize how much we love,
a sight in a setting sun,
the rush of a forest waterfall,
an essence of life’s mystery in the evocative
setting of a lush rainforest.
All these are matters of the heart,
and after all,
isn’t love an emotional receptor,
or perhaps it is a deceiver
for that is the only rhyme I could find,
in the balance of this testimony.
For I do love you,
I always will, and no matter
the deceptive nature of my words,
the truth will win itself out,
and time will be our gift.
All knowing and understood,
the seeds planted,
the emotions already in check,
they speak volumes on a clear blue day,
when energy explodes,
a cacophony of brilliance in
That is love,
it is a wise love,
a giving, and nearly spiritual reckoning,
That is love that isn’t needing any urgency,
it simply is,
we both knew needs,
an ethereal cosmos well perceived
in both our minds,
long before this sit down.
erupts inside our psyche,
we seek, appreciate, notice, suggest,
is there a smile, or perhaps,
we might need to hold out a little longer.
Sun begins to set,
our desires are almost apparent,
we are in the public eye,
so a swift trace of touch,
enough to offer comfort,
we can deal with this later.
If I were allowed I will pull you toward me,
in the eyes of our society, hold you forever,
then we might begin …
I’m surrounded by a memory with a visual tear,
volumes, bindings, words waiting upon hands
and eyes, I remember her eyes
would cause me swoon,
when suddenly in the minute I turn,
she would stand, alone, content,
her chosen travels inside the parchment
only to pause to smile.
I remember moments well, and yearn
to see a familiar shoulder, a wisp of hair,
oh, her eyes, I wish only for those once more.
Ah, the morning, the initial waking pause,
Reflect upon what is now real in our lives,
Oh, treat my senses with a memory cause,
I did recall the grace her wonder revives.
In this the start of a day, a rain falls gentle
An indication of some cleansing love alive
In my heart and soul, it is a fundamental
Reality suggests love is only meant to thrive.
In the moment, I dream the recall I knew
When in my arms we did travel a distance
Again, in the sweet twilight, a kiss so new
Always the nature of time recreates chance.
For we are compelled to always wonder now,
As passion designs a certain elegance in how.
The world around me stops,
until I can see you
There is this force of nature,
the instinct of love,
brings me to my knees
wishes only to hold you near me,
the feel of your long hair in my face,
quiet, sensuality reminds me of just why
I do love you.
Tonight, I stood near you,
and though it was a slow, calming, encounter,
I felt a need to somehow
reach across your world and feel beauty,
the soft nature of your scarf, clinging fabric, to know
there is an essence of your presence,
in my eyes tonight,
my greatest satisfaction.
Because I do love you,
just saying good-bye for the moment,
would bring a quiet tear,
one that rather than wait around to see a reciprocate,
I would drive away,
because I know I love you.
While around us people would continue
lives in motion,
always remains in my mind,
in your eyes, in the feel of your touch,
the soft fabric of a gentle caress,
is clear in my mind, always,
because when I love you,
I know peace.
