The morning after love
A gentle tender whisper
In the daybreak as we rose
Bagels and lox for you
Just cream cheese for me
Our favorite cafe` table
As we sipped a darkened brew

Smiles endlessly shining
Eyes singing delightfully
Dancing in their shadows
As they penetrated
My quiet composure
A somewhat pleasant stress
Washed over me
In my naivete

And I whispered
I love you...

Sonnet XIX

 
Sonnet XIX


My lover's kiss was like a million stars,
Across the jaded purple velvet night,
And then the starlight falling from his eyes,
Reflected on this halo burning bright.

His angel, strong and beautiful, was I,
Who saved him from himself one fateful night,
And left behind with him my tender heart,
Along beside a tear at morning light.

Passed twenty years, my calling once again,
Return me to the depths from whence I came;
The needs there of a solitary friend,
Upon who's heart I once had staked my claim.

Oh, how can I but send to him my love?
His angel from the Heavens up above.
