Poems

I Wait For You Back

From gloomy streets of Hamilton
To blue Pacific shores
I send these pleasant thoughts to you
I write them as not chores.

Let lust for life lift spirits high
Let energies abound
Let absence make the heart grow fond
Let mysteries confound.

Let sand between your toes entice
Let sipping wine enthrall
Let summer have its way with you
I’ll have you in the Fall.

You are a continent away
And yet I feel you near
You are a continent away
But still I have you here.

You’re in my every waking thought
You’re in my dreams as well
And if that were not true my dear
I could not leave my hell

You are my inspiration bright
You are a guiding star
I look to you to feel alive
Even from afar

You feel the pleasant wind of West
The North entices not
The South has no demands on you
The East is where you’re sought

If wings could sprout upon my back
I’d take to air today
And fly to you at brilliant speed
As fast as could be made

Have joyful times on far off shores
Have music, fun and song
But remember that I love you dear
For you I do so long

Return to me with brightened eyes
Return to me anew
Return from far off journeys
Return with lightened views

If but for a moment
Peace has found your heart
Let that moment linger
Let life begin to start

Let pleasant memories foster
Pleasant times ahead
Let time I’ve spent apart from you
Be worth what went unsaid

And so the world continues bright
With knowledge that I keep
That you will be returning soon
And love upon I’ll heap

So get on plane and come back East
With West a pleasant thought
Let Southern breeze remind us
What Northern storms can not

That seasons come and seasons go
And on the coldest day
We think of ocean, sand and surf
We think of summer play

And life like that can always be
If thoughts in stormy weather
Can turn to pleasant memories
Of mountains green with heather

So if our life gets stormy
At times its want to be
Let breezes West in mind prevail
Let breezes West be me

Never Have I Fallen

Your lips speak soft sweetness
Your touch a cool caress
I am lost in your magic
My heart beats within your chest

I think of you each morning
And dream of you each night
I think of your arms being around me
And cannot express my delight

Never have I fallen
But I am quickly on my way
You hold a heart in your hands
That has never before been given away

About You

Your touch is with me always,
It’s burnt into my skin,
As soft and warm as sun rays
When a summer day sets in.

Your soft voice never silent,
It’s forever in my ears,
Serenading every moment
And calming all my fears.

Your arms always enfold me,
The strength of angels wings,
They support and protect me wholly
With the safety a true love brings.

While I can never repay you,
For the wonder you bring to my life,
I can forever be true,
And forever be a true wife.

Honey Did You Know

Honey did you know??
That you had me all the way
With those softly spoken words
That you chose to say

Honey did you know??
You always amaze me
And that is one thing,
That I would like you to see

Honey did you know??
You’ve changed the way I see things
You make me happy to look forward to,
What tomorrow will bring

Honey did you know??
When I’m singing in the mirror
I imagine I’m singing in front of you
And I’m holding you near

Honey did you know??
That even though your not here
I can always feel you love,
Cause I hold your feelings near

Honey did you know??
I run all the things you say, around in my head
It usually brings me peace at night,
Before I go to bed

Honey did you know??
That you are in my dreams at night
And honey you look just like an angel
And you send me on a flight

Honey did you know
I will always think of you this way
That is why forever
With you my heart will stay

I Carry Your Heart with Me

I carry your heart with me
(I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it
(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)

I fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
I want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart
(I carry it in my heart)

e.e. cummings

It had Literally Tear Me

I can’t get my mind off of you,
You mean so much to me,
Baby I’m really in love with you,
I just wished you could see how deep.

My feelings keep getting stronger for you,
Each second that passes us by,
If I didn’t have you here baby,
There’d be no point in me having a life.

You always know when I’m happy,
You can always tell when I’m sad,
Your a dream come true baby,
Your more than I’ve ever had.

I really wished you could see,
Exactly how much you mean to me,
It’s more than you’d believe,
It’s more than I thought it could be.

Baby I’d die for you,
Any second of the day,
I want you to know it’s true,
It’s not something I’d just say.

I love you baby,
With every piece of my heart,
I hope I never lose you,
It’d Literally Tear Me Apart.
