A love in verse

The tears I’d gladly pay

To hear you play once more!

- I shed them anyway

Each time I listen for

Your fingers on the keys-

The thought can only tease


The rain may fall all day

The sun burn up the blue

The years may fall away

(They’ll lead me nearer you)

But always I’ll recall

Singing down the hall


That perfection of tone

And sometime hesitation

That was your very own

An almost meditation

On the pain and sweetness

When love seals life’s completeness

Hair Wash

I looked in, saw you washing your hair,

Kneeling, turning head side to side

To catch the shower jets...

Sonnet: Love that Has Cost Me Dear

How much my love for you has cost me dear

For love I have surrendered loneliness

The choice of life bereft of cheer...
