I loved you right back

To be honest I was just the boy in the corner With his heart a mess Until you came along Like an animal rescuer to the lowest stray You arrived in my weakest moment And loved me with words Loved me back to life Told me I was a poet Whose words could touch the…

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…

Invite me in

On a calm summer’s day as pleasant as a rose garden in bloom And the sun filters love through the lattice in your room I am there with you through the words I’ve written The songs of my heart resound from love smitten Like oil over water, cast yourself upon the page Spread over the…

The story of us

You asked me to write a story Inspired by our friendship To live on in the hearts and minds of others How does the sea breeze describe the ocean tides Or the whale describe the water that it swims in It is the life they breathe The love that makes them live And so the…

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…

Only in our hearts

Only in the heart do we really know What we mean to each other Love is not measured in circumstances In outer proportions, mathematical statistics, Or even in the things you can see We think we can judge by what we see We can’t Ask Helen Keller who could neither see nor hear But said…

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…
