Love's Regret

Love’s regret
Reminds me
To be gentle with my heart
And not to give my love so freely
Nor to misplace my feelings
So that they will fall
Where they may not be welcomed
Nor encouraged to blossom and grow…
But love’s hope is always drawn on a path
To the one it most desires
Whether that is wise or not
Perhaps I said too much
Or not enough
But I have spoken my truth
The consequences of my words
Will soon reveal my fate…

Mirrors and Light - Some words for my Friend

So many years have passed
Since our paths first crossed
I have never asked you
Or expected you to love me
At one time I had hoped
But I knew that could never be
I did however wish
You would always be my friend
You once said when I had angered you
“We are not engaged”
Well no we weren’t
I don’t need to be engaged to anyone
I am not seeking a fiancé or a husband
I did not want to change you
Or change your life
I admired you for whom you were
Your good qualities, your integrity
Your kindness and humanity
You say I must have faith in you
Well yes I do
Though, when you leave
The shadows of doubt move in
And I reach out to you with
Heartfelt words and there is no reply
And wonder if this time you won't return
How many years it has been now
And I have been here for you
Always … waiting
It is comforting to see you
Watching me from a distance
Sad that you don’t always venture closer
And leave some words for me
I miss your conversation and poems
Perhaps now you have nothing to say to me?
I wish I could catch the light in a mirror
And shine it in your direction
To attract your attention
When you are there at the edge of my world
Perhaps then I could speak to you
And tell you
I do not want to change your world
My world is brighter when you are near
I would just like you to be my friend ...

Memories of Yesterday

So sweet is the feeling
That love brings to the heart
The first consciousness
Of its presence
Brings a blush of warmth
And expectation
A feeling of happiness
And anticipation
Like an open window
On a sunny morning
The light flows in
And encompasses all
With its warm brightness
A garden of colour
Of new spring flowers
You breathe in the beauty
Everything in the world
Seems more lovely
The flowers are more scented
The sky is so blue
The birds sing more sweetly
All is right with the world...
But time can change so much
It seems nothing lasts forever
Since you are not here
The clouds of doubt move in
On my sunshine days
Sad when one feels
They should move on and forget
But I cannot
Well not yet …
The past is calling me
And my heart is still lost
In your words and memories
Of yesterday
