Presence of Love
 
so long I  waited 
the days we spent 
friendship thrived
we were inseparable
 
there is a lover
you are her world
in the moonlight
she weeps
 
and so still  I wait
will it be always
waiting for you to notice
presence of love
in my heart for you

Fearless Love

too long a time
left without barricade
my heart was defenseless

childhood abandonment
created scars; scabbed wounds
strong as a brick wall
entombed my heart

panic guided relationships
hysteria drove love away
absconding from affection
solitude was my stronghold

then there was you

how you found your way
beyond the bricks and mortar
mystifies me still

an honest smile
a silent understanding
a compulsive love

now I have a love story
written in your name
hope replaces fearfulness
love owns the blame

Voice of Love

No Regrets
 no regrets
with wine and roses
whispered promises
you won my heart
 
years past swiftly
with ups and downs
reality, love and life
 
we experienced joys
and life’s strife
thru it all 
you stood tall
 
and I gave you
every part of me
with no regrets

Rose That Survived the Storm

 

a blossoming flower ~ our rose
unfolding to embrace the sun
with scintillating emotions

hearts emanating ecstatic joy
heated bodies and warm souls
responded to embrace love

then came winter’s chill
we almost withered away
sunny skies turned to grey 
heated emotions began to cool

a bubble of hope that wouldn’t die
spark of promise for another try
warm hands reached in trust
our rose survived the storm

Quixotic Star

I delight in watching you when you’re unaware
it’s my good fortune to love a man like you
what magnanimous deed could I have done
to garner the unconditional love you return

surreptitious moments are my guarded jewels
when admiringly my eyes trace you unawares
when you are the perfect, imperfect man I love
each nuance revealing the unfeigned you

I’m creating memories to last my lifetime
my private motion pictures to view at whim  
falling in love repeatedly with the quixotic star
my romance hero..love of my life

River of Love

 

Intersection

 you cross my mind
at the intersection
of decision and indecision
waiting for the light to change

Sitting at the yellow pause
contemplating me and you
not use to so much affection
frozen intentions ~ what to do

 

wondering will I stop
putting up a red light
building walls to keep you out
is that my decided plight

shall I run into your arms
flash the green let love grow
or sit at this intersection
pondering which way to go

must make a decision
before I’m thrown off course
love does not wait forever
this intersection will be crossed

Butterfly Waltz

 

 

 

Dance with me darling
to the melody of the Butterfly Waltz
an angelic tune played on the ivories
by delicate whispers of butterfly wings
spreading the arrow of cupid’s bow

myriad of angels raised voices do sing
tidings of love carried on wings
romance of hearts twixt you and me
spreading the magic of angelic love
blessed wedding our eternal destiny

Promise in a Music Box

  meet me tomorrow at daybreak
at the ocean shore, he implored
an anticipated lover’s rendezvousmusic box
hopeful promise ~ a secret new

morning sun danced across the sea
found his note along with the key
lovely locked porcelain music box
good-bye token he’d left for me

Bittersweet melody a farewell song
lover’s promise already gone

I’ll always love you but cannot stay
sea is my mistress I cannot betray
this porcelain box ~ song that it plays
reminder ~ in my heart you’ll stay
