Love is a Garden

Love is a garden
Where happiness grows
From the hopes that we planted
And the seeds that were sown
Love blooms like flowers
And opens our hearts
To the beauty that surrounds us
And soon fills our hearts
With the wonders of life
And a beauty profound
The birds sing more sweetly
In the branches of trees
The leaves sing their song
In the soft morning breeze
The flowers are more lovely
When we take the time to feel
A tapestry of petals
Where the flowers grow
Woven with their fragrance
In the sunshine's morning glow
Love is a garden
Where grows a tree of life
Where wishes are granted
And dreams realised ...

Love Set Me Free

False hopes betray me
And leave me undone
Not even the stars 
can help me
When I wish upon one
Nothing is the way
It was promised to be
Hope upon prayer
Love let me be
Release my heart
From your promise I sought
Untangle the threads
That bound me so tight
To a love left wanting
That would not be
To love unfulfilled
A love denied
To a love unforgiving
So love set me free ...

There Are No Words ...

I wanted to write a poem to tell you how I feel and though I searched deep within myself I could not find the words. I wanted to tell you that something within me has changed and that now I feel everything so deeply. 
How I have been mourning the days that have passed me by. Times when I have let opportunities go, lost forever, and times when I have chased after dreams only to fall like a fool.
The places to which I wanted to travel, to experience, the lavender in Provence, the meadows and music of the French countryside, the flowers in Tuscany, so many places, so many dreams, places you have seen ... but time did not wait for me, or stand still and now it is too late ... regrets, how do I explain?
These emotions that I cannot put into words, or a rhyme, they are feelings deep within me, you may not understand.
They are feelings that I cannot express with words, like the notes of a song ... how do I explain how they touch my heart, a note resonating on the string of a cello, a fleeting melody that moves me to tears or a feeling of happiness?
The scent of flowers in a night garden carried on the warm evening air, a feeling, an emotion, when I think of you... the sound of laughter and music carried across the water on a Summer's night, reflected lights on the surface. Soft moonlight, paper lanterns hanging in trees, holiday dreams, feelings ... no words.
How does one explain loneliness and happiness, I only know when I feel them, or love, how can that feeling be put into words? If there is a way then perhaps I have lost my direction, I can only feel them, not explain.
How do I explain the feelings of beauty when I read your words to me; the warm colour and emotions that enfold me, there are no words for such a beautiful feeling ... or the love that I feel for you ... it cannot be explained, it cannot be defined ... it just is ...

Far and Away ... So Close

Though you are far away from me
Both in distance and in time
I think of you to bring you close.
It is comforting to know
That the sun which warms me now
And every morn
Will always shine for you.
It has left you and your northern sky
And turns my night into day
Just like the words that you say
Its warmth shall light my day.
When you look up to your star filled sky
And the silver moonlight of your night
Please stop a while
Let time stand still
And in that silent moment
Think of me 
For my thoughts will also be with you.
In the stillness of your night
And the brightness of my day
Perhaps in the space that's in between
Our thoughts will pass, so close
Yet each unseen
To echo through the silence of space and time
And join our hearts together in a beautiful dream ...

Days of Certainty

Gone are my days of certainty
Lost in distance and time
No peace of mind
Since love left me
Without a reason why
Warm thoughts stir my heart
And wash over me
Of days that have gone by
Days of flowers and happiness
A reflection of love in time
Moments stolen from memory
From behind the mask of time
Hidden away in dark places
Behind a veiled disguise ...
