La Nom De La Rose

Too long the darkness I'd known,
wondering at the words of a single night.
And not like a dream, I was left alone,
to carelessly think upon what I had heard.
Though dreams dared not take flight,
they lingered, whispering a word.

Then as a light from a distant star,
I took a step towards the waiting border.
Though I would wander, wide and far
my heart remained upon its single course.
Within its throes did grace find order,
the likeness of beauty at its source.

Kindness and love for any creature,
given in character, a wisdom of the heart.
Delicacy and strength in every feature,
is her look that sparkles like morning dew.
Though I am torn by a moment apart,
I am met by joy in each day anew.

Her embrace is a fare scent and rare.
as warm and tender as an evening's dream.
For a breath of life and touch of hair,
the poet's ransom is offered in every word.
For love as beloved as this might seem,
I pray that wonder is as I've heard.

A Thousand Dreams and Miles

Now, what words shall I say,
of these pictures in a thousand dreams.
And so I'll think of you another day,
only tomorrow, though beauty never ends.
An array of light in endless streams,
like the stars, this love it mends. 

To close my eyes at your side,
I could sleep again - as I slept long ago.
This fragile road, this care free ride,
in the moments I take nothing for granted.
My heart is young with you I know,
I am more and more enchanted.

Your gentle heart's revealed,
though you say but a word in kindness.
With but a glance my heart is sealed,
given in friendship, my loyalty for the ages.
In importance there is our likeness,
greater than words on the pages.

Amazing thoughts of beauty,
as you surprise and inspire, I am stolen.
Moved by my love's honor and duty,
I would continue the road a thousand miles.
In so many times when I have fallen,
you would lift me in your smiles.

Here, the touch of your hand,
it takes away every fear without a name.
And though nothing I have planned,
I have merely strayed where the heart leads.
Yet without you I am never the same,
I know now what my heart needs.

If you might turn away fear,
closing your eyes for a moment of trust,
I promise the day will not shed a tear,
and some do live in the moment, unending.
In yesterday, are only ashes and dust,
but today, our heart is mending.

The Best of Me

How to say, you're the best of me,
my words can only fail, though I might try.
You're the friend I should hope to be,
yet yours I'll be through all my earthly days.
At the beginning, at the end, and why?
You still charm me with your ways.

My heart should sing - be you near,
where this happiness should embrace me.
I have crossed the bridge of every fear,
where my heart waited uncertain and alone.
Never content, should life leave me be,
your kindness took me for its own.

Hold fast - if loves holds you high,
you're both brave and beautiful and more.
Do not fear where any danger may lie,
you are strong, be the light in the darkness.
And so I hold you near, as ever before,
my friend in hope and my gladness. 

Our day is awesome and a mystery,
we don't know what tomorrow will bring.
More places to go - more places to see,
and you my dear friend, you keep me steady.
Do not worry about every little thing,
all will be right if our time is ready.
