Lovers' Tryst

The silent night sleeps as two hearts run in league
Each reluctant to raise the wakeful mist
The drear autumn sky is covered by mantle of night
While forbidden fate hides a lovers’ tryst

The eyes of night do espy that which by day abides in guise
Though fate will not allow this love one can’t resist
They chance the heart stay open to live, to love and soon be broken
While dreams hearken to this lovers tryst

To pray the moon hold fast its path and beg yond’ dawn be stayed
Though noble true and fair the cause, they’re bound ne’er to desist
“O blessθd night.”… Juliet sighs, holding back her secret fear that
This dream will e’er remain a lovers’ tryst

My Love, My Soul

Shadows lengthen slowly o'er
The place our hearts did meet
Where are you moon, light of my soul?
Where is your watchful gaze?

These eyes are sorely blinded, for
They long for blissful sleep
Yet, still I wait. Be still my soul
Wait 'til the end of day.

For in the gentle gloaming hour
When sun meets western deep
The moon shall light unto my soul
And light her beckoned way.

Oh, maiden fairly bless-ed, our
Two hearts do run in league
For love, I risk eternal soul
For love, here I remain.

My Rose

My rose, though growing in a garden not my own, is mine all the same

Do not my eyes smile at her beauty and lose themselves in her scent?

Do not my fingers tremble with anticipation just to touch her silky skin?

While there may be pain when I hold her in my strong embrace

It compares not to the loss I feel when at last her I release

All the world may know her beauty and pen such odes to last in infamy

Yet words alone will never do poetic justice to her loveliness

This rose grows ever in my heart for it is, and will e’er remain her own

Nothing Lost

Shared dreams and shadows of what will never falter
Rise to the heavens on the celestial steam from
Our morning cup of sunshine.

We hope and believe and choose to see
Through rose colored glasses as we nibble from
The same sweet pastry.

Our cardboard vessels keep us company as
Time slips by and the world goes on before us
Around us, in spite of us.

The morning is past and the sun flies high
Though we are shaded by the immovable
Unchanging tide of being.

The world at large goes on happily ignored
While yet one drop, one smile remains to feed
This fervent vision.

Steam will abate and our cups may grow lighter but
There is nothing lost, nothing lost that a little time and
A few dollars can’t refill.
