THE SUNLIGHT

Here strolling the past along a shimmering beach,
I can still envision the sunlight in your hair.
It was a time the future lay within our reach,
β€˜Fore the past begged me to remember I was there!

The sea was turbulent and the rain was falling,
And gently I would caress its tears from your face.
Each day was a moment our future kept calling!
While the past became a dream it could not replace….

Go here to experience the entire poem in print and/or video!

A Walk In the Rain

SOME ROMANTIC VERSE FOR YOU!

In it’s own special and serendipitous way, poetry should entertain you, surprise you, enliven you and delight you. Here’s a poem of mine I trust may accomplish all these things. And if it should, may it also induce you to check out a whole volume of mine that beckons to do the same!

A WALK IN THE RAIN

Oh, not too long ago, on a lonely day like today,
I watched you like the sunset that came but failed to remain.
And like every leaving sunset–I watched you walk away.
On a day like today…so much filled with darkness and rain.

And though my torched heart truly loved you and begged you to stay,
(And though you paused long enough to give me strength to sustain
The worry of your leaving and the darkness of the day)
I never thought you’d leave till you stepped out into the rain.

And though the rain keeps on falling, and seems so bleak and black,
And I feel like I’m drowning in a pool of endless pain,
Suddenly, one day–ah, the very same day! You came back!
(For you never left me. You just took a walk in the rain.)

FARAWAY AND LOST (PART 1)
Β 
So let us put away courage and cower on the floor,
In the ghastly instances when twilight is on the eve!
For tragedy lurks, and the wolf is always at the door,
And death is everywhere–no matter what you may believe!
Β 
For we always assume that we will stay young forever
And all the salient lives we cherish will never die,
And all the ties that bind us–no truth will ever sever,
Since there is nothing–good or evil–we cannot defy!
Β 
Then suddenly…the years become an incoherent tide
And we are caught wearing grief about us like a used glove,
While struggling to keep our feelings as strangers outside
Near all the kindred souls we need but need never think of!
(And I? Who seldom ever felt grief when a stranger died?
I, at last, now know how it feels to lose someone you love.)
