The Library (frosty eyes)

We know

were kind eyes

for a life did I unfold a passion

years later

could a gift a sudden

remind

once then

did we kiss to hold and know

life would live

well beyond our years

when then

this might be a sudden

delight

in eyes, in heart, in soul

our mind’s eye

could now we know,

would we still …

imagine.

Every Day We Can Love

pink-valentines-day-backgrounds-10024-hd-wallpapers

When we feel the sun upon skin at dawn

we might be thankful of another rise

inside the spectrum of a life begun

in my eyes, your beauty then in my eyes

I have been gifted the presence of one,

delightful, lovely, in my friend so wise.

While every rising sun and setting moon

I might be known without rest impulsive

she will comfort me, why she’ll nearly swoon

despite my incredulous dismissive

state of mind, far greater her love will soon

begin a sojourn toward love suggestive.

This is my friend, her love as so designed

I am humbled by lasting love so kind
