The bridge from me to you

I love how the bridge of life arches from here to there Firmly fixed and connected to you, that’s where The heart is not naturally a lonely soul at all But seeks its connection, whether large or small A delicate breeze ripples the river A coldness across the valley brings a shiver But the warmth…

Who holds the heart of the moon

Depth, deeper than ocean’s deep Love deeper still Romance that steals the heart of the glowing moon Flinging its light into corners that have never known light Like a man awakening from a deep sleep and squinting in its brightness Is the romance I have prepared this heart for And refuse to accept Anything less…

The Wishing Well

Oh wish us well, Wishing Well When life is bad or life is swell Was my briefest message to tell As I sat there by the well On its old stone wall in the cool of the day To lament the state of my garden by the way For though I missed the butterfly and…

Love flows eternal

There at the end of our garden in view Flows a river of love with my memories of you Dip your feet in the shallow and see There was nothing shallow between you and me Cool is the water that flows ankle deep Passion is the heart that makes the birds cheep They sound in…

Every starlit sky reminds me of you

There were times When we just didn’t want to say anything When all we could do All we wanted to do Was rest gently in each other’s arms Your head resting on my chest My fingers stroking your hair Two deeply caring friends And we lay out in the garden In late September And listen…

The love-sent message of the stars

I want to imagine the two of us You and me Gazing upon the night sky to see Its vast array of lights Welcoming us to come and believe The stars do more than just twinkle, you know They whisper love Again and again Three messages they speak Love-sent from the heavens One: the beauty…

You are immensely loved

In a summer meadow, sunflowers bask in the open air Under cerulean skies wave the golden heads of joy A light breeze tickles the grassy hill about them Bright yellow dandelions shudder and dance In fields of wild green grass Burgundy poppies dot the landscape nearby in fields of red Emerald hills go on forever…

There will be no more distance

There is a distance between here and there A gap we cannot cross Until it is time. There was a distance while you were here That kept us guessing the truth To be safe and trusting. We both understood But it hurt For we knew we wanted closeness Not distance that kept us apart Or…

Pretending to fly

Could we read a story together Just you and I Let’s immerse ourselves in the words and Like robins and bluebirds Pretend to fly When I shared my poem with you A part of me flew Flew from my heart to yours As high as an eagle soars We were never the same after that…
