Who’s That?

Who’s that a knock-knock-knocking
at the valves of my heart?
Like the raindrops a drop-drop-dropping
making me want to dance.

Whose name is a drum-drum-drumming
in the corners of my mind?
Like a tune that’s a hum-hum-humming
on my lips all the time.

Who’s that a smile-smile-smiling
in my sparkling eyes?
Like the moon that’s a shine-shine-shining
keeping me up at night.

And if you are a guess-guess-guessing –
Who that special person could be?
The one who sets me a spin-spin-spinning
is you…yes only you…my baby.

A Love Poem

Love me forever like
the wind loves the rain;
like the warp loves the weft
in a long woven train.

Together, we’re the best
like wine and cheese;
a meld that allures
like musk and sweat.

Love me endlessly like
the cold loves the winter;
like the Sun loves the Earth
in this vast universe.

Love me with a love
that’ll always be true,
for this is exactly how
I will love you too.

To My Love

My heart yearns for your love, dearest.
like a desert awaits the falling rain.
I long and long to hold you
like the night embraces the Moon.
You are the one and only one
who brightens my life like the Sun.
I will love you forever and ever.
As long as I live and even thereafter.

The Conundrum

Love – like flames burning
charcoal hearts turning
them into cinders.

Love – like tsunamis crashing
on soul shores turning
them into watery crypts.

Love – like hurricanes blowing
over mind memories turning
them to ghost towns.

Love – like tremors shaking
Atlantean promises turning
them to scattered debris.

Love – leaving a trail of Devastation
or paving the way for Creation?
The conundrum.

Who am I?

I am in the beat of a heart that yearns.
I am in the pain during a child’s birth.
I am in the old leaf falling from a tree.
I am in the prayer riding on the breeze.

I am in the silence that ends the fight.
I am in the wrong done to make it right.
I am in the eyes that light up with smiles.
I am in the memories that haunt at night.

I am in the hand that gives more than asked.
I am in the sweat that completes each task.
I am in the snuggles on a grey, rainy day.
I am in the cheer that’s shouted on the way.

Who am I? I hide; I am hidden; I seek,
I am sought; I reveal and I am revealed.
Forever, like the precious treasure trove,
I am the reason for it all – I am love.

Missing You

Raindrops shine like snowflakes
in the glare of headlights.
The darkness ahead unravels
a little more as I drive.

Alone with the weeping skies,
swishing wipers for company,
wish there was one for my mind
that could wipe out memories.

Of laughter, and promises of
being together, our moments
of happiness, of your love
and sweet tenderness.

It was easy for you to leave.
To say goodbye as I cried
and wished you’d come back to me
long after the tears had dried.

A Different Kind of Love

The sun may set in the west.
It will never set on our love, my love.
The years do the seasons test.
They can’t test our love, my love.

Even the oceans have boundaries.
Our love is like the limitless skies.
The nights with all their bright lights
can’t blind your face from my eyes

Promises – they are meant to break.
Our love is stronger than mere words.
Life is shortened by inevitable death.
While our love will live on and on.

Everlasting Love

Your love grows deep in me
like a pomegranate tree.
It’s red fruit full of passion
with a taste that’s everlasting.
The branches spread out within
me with leaves that are evergreen.
The roots reach into my heart.
No distance that keeps us apart
will ever be wide enough
for this witness of our love
will keep us united as we live
this life, and after death, endlessly.

Love’s Musings

Traffic jam on a busy lane.
Like a clot in a deep blue vein.
A thousand powers conspire
against the forces of desire.
Battles once won are lost.
My heart’s missing, forever gone.
The noise, the lights and the smoke
can’t stop these thoughts of love.
The darkness closes behind me
as night swallows the twilight.
Every turn of the wheels
takes me closer to a love that’s real
I get that feeling – a kind of rush
I’m coming home to you – to us.

Love Unrequited

The stranger’s eyes fell upon me.

Cupid struck; I was in love!

And across the room I could see

only him. The stars above

warned me and forbade me

to dream about him.

Many times, during a dark night’s sleep

I declared my love for him

and he would say the same to me.

Oh! But Cupid’s arrow had strayed.

And I saw my love dance and sing

and give his heart to her – and say –

that he loved her. The strings

that held my dream castles so lightly

broke and left tears lingering

on my face – my love unrequited.
