My Poetry is my X-Ray


The universe is mysterious

Connecting to messages we send and receive

Responding to what is positive

Or that to which we grieve

Somebody living in Boise

Relates to someone in San Diego

Somehow a connection through the ether

Slips out of the shadow

I know you’ve experienced loss

But in loss we can also find our way

There is a purpose in our healing

Pain is a teacher but it does not have to stay

Even 953 miles

Does not seem far away

Something I can’t really explain

So my poetry is my X-Ray

We Were Once There Lest We Forget


When the tears came to my eyes

I knew something powerful overtook me

The tears were not for my sorrow’s

But for you in your time of need

The courage to forgive your past

Put behind you the blame and proceed

Refreshes your soul and cleanses you

The mind now in the present to exceed

The price we pay if we earn

The lessons in which we achieve

Are seldom given the attention

That will provide in our time of need

The strength of our conditioning

Contingent on the foundation that it is built

Is subject to tribulation

The source for much of our guilt

We bond to others when we care

We experience them as they are

We create a pathway to nurture

Trying to recalibrate to the North Star

We all need a compass

Our navigation is often upset

Be there for your friends and loved ones

We were once there lest we forget

And So I Say this to You


This passion in my heart that burns so deep

You’ve touched my soul

And for this I weep

These tears of joy

You’ve brought to my eyes

No longer alone

My heart no longer disguised

You can search in a lifetime

And never meet that special one

Too often we are distracted

The wrong timing

Things never get done

I heard you laughing

And that’s when I knew

I want that laugh in my life

And so I say this to you

You are my muse

The one I revere

The one I feel closest to

Carino, my dear

It’s when I hold you and kiss you

When our hearts connect

Our hearts have bonded

Our hearts intersect

The Many Things I Love about You


Your hands are soft

Like a velvet glove

The laughter you give

Are the things I write of

You have a warm heart

You sometimes will shield

You remain strong

But only in love will you yield

The smile of an angel

Will look upon my face

The eyes deeply expressing

To me what you embrace

From different worlds

That we might be

Are still but the same

For you and me

Your hair is radiant

Giving shimmer and shine

I want only to caress it

In these hands of mine

The words that you speak

Have me under a spell

The voice that I love

Makes my heart swell

The many things I love about you

I have yet to learn

I keep my heart open

And save them in turn

Your kisses I cannot resist

The stars lined up when we met

And these wonderful feelings persist

Your soft lips taste so sweet

You bring out the romantic in me

It Was a Perfect Day


It was a perfect day

When you came into my life

It’ll be the perfect day

When I take you as my wife

It was a perfect day

Was it Love at first sight?

It was a perfect day

I think I may I think I might

Just love you

How I want to show you

Put your hand in mine

I want to show you

I will dedicate my time

I want to show you

With every word that I write

I want to show you

With passionate kisses under the moonlight

Love Poem Number Nine


Through sunrise and sunset

Between dusk and daybreak

Let’s share our hearts

For us to partake

I will always try

To give to you

What is inside

The best of me

The power of two

The harmony of we

In what I feel

In what I see

The feelings are stronger

In this bond that I share

I need only look into your eyes

To see that the universe has answered my prayer

I write this poem

The feeling of divine

This poem is yours

Love poem number nine
