Various poems I have collected over the years.

I'm sure you've noticed that most of the older ones were all depressing, well, you'll be glad to see that the new ones are much more upbeat.


Effect You Have

I hear the sound of your voice, and turn my head suprised
My stare is caught and held by you, I stand here mezmerized.
I am honestly amazed, at your precious, liquid grace
I am totally enamored, when I kiss your fragile face
Never ceasing to astonish me, your spell on me is cast
When you hold me close all fear is lost, my soul finds peace at last
My mind has been enlightened, and my heart is open wide
The glow I feel grows each day, never to subside

I am completely yours



Along Came You

who was I
I look back upon those days
Before you held me in your arms
I walked aimlessly through the world
Seeing people in love
I never understood what they had
How it felt to have someone
Who knew your thoughts without you saying a word
Someone you knew loved you by the look in her eyes
Or felt her love in each word she spoke

Then along came you
My heart raced as I caught your gaze
I could not think or speak
Your beauty swept my thoughts away
And then you spoke
I never heard a voice so alluring
Your words and eyes captured me
I knew I was not alone any more
Since the first time I saw you
You have had my heart
I don't need to wonder who I am
I am nothing without you



A Longing For You

Planted was a seed in my mind
That one day I would have you as mine
From where this seed came I do not know

I know I long to feel your tender kiss
Or to hear my name whispered from your sweet lips

I want to touch, feel and smell your skin
Carress it ever so softly and take it all in

Your love has taken me to places unknown
Yet I feel so entirely at home

I love you more with each passing day
I love you in every possible way

I cannot wat for our lives to collide
To hold you and wake up right at your side

I will be praying for the days to go fast
So that I might see my love at last

So know in your heart there is someone who cares
Whose love for you will never wear
Who will love you forever and unconditionally
And that the someone who loves you
Is me


Making a friend takes but a moment
Being a friend takes a lifetime
Friendship is a special gift
It adds fragrance to life
It creates love and trust
A friend is one to whom
You may pour put your heart
A friend can rise to wealth
And glory and still pause
When friends get together
The fun gets going
You're so special in so many ways
You have the nicest way of brightening
up a day
No matter how far away you are
Let us grow in love and sympathy towards
one another.

The Rainy Day
The day is cold, and dark and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall
And the day is dark and dreary.
My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.
Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

I can hear you talking
your voices carry on to me
and yet it's really only echo's
of long ago
when you noticed me

I have done so many things
that you should be proud of
but I don't think you ever acknowledged them
or their meaning

So now I shall dwell in my world
where only escape
will rest me

Confused Feelings
A jumble of feelings
Torn apart
Always back and forth
Love or enthusiasm
Hopes or Dreams
Hearts talk
But rarely someone understands
Doors, waiting to be opened
Keys, I can not find
Hurt or tears
Will you catch me?
Hopeless against the magic of Love
Will I recognize you
When you are waiting for me?

Where are you?
Where were you
Where did you come from
Where did you go to
You said you liked me
Or did you lie
What did I do
Why aren't you looking at me
I lost myself or am I still there
Where should I go to
What's gonna happen next
Should I believe you, just trust you
Don't hurt me
Or am I bleeding already
Are you thinking of me
Like I am thinking of you
You're on my mind
24 Hours of the day
Can't cry no tears
I gave my heart away
Are you coming back
Or where are you going to
Tell me
Where are you ...?

Without you
Never, so you said
You will never leave me
Forever, so you said
You stay with me forever
Love, so you said
You love me more than you can say
Trust, so you said
And trusting you I did
Faith, so you said
You will always be faithful
You dried my tears
When I was crying
You picked me up
When I felt down
You made me strong
When I felt weak
You were always there for me
But when I died
I died alone
Without You

Would you?
How could I not have heard you call my name
Beyond the tears you now cry for me
How could I not feel?
Feel the whispers you spoke with your fingertips
Invisible hugs reaching out to touch me softly
Tranquilizing me, staring deep into my soul
Until you watched me turn the other way
Not just looking but starring in disbelieve
It was not because I didn't care

Now I sit here wondering
Broken hearts, do they sometimes heal?
Shattered souls, do they sometimes mend?
Is love good enough when it really matters?
And if I was to say "I'm sorry"
Would you believe and trust again?

Always and forever
A single piece of paper
Your words of love written all across
Memories from not long ago
Began to fade tonight
Nervous laughter, silent words
Steps in the other direction
Knowing it's the right thing
For you and I to just let go
I still think of you
As you always know I will
One more time
I wanted to hear your whisper
Your gentle voice
To make me shiver
Leaving goosebumps on my skin
But feelings did not allow
To let it happen
Just one more time
One last "I love you"
Before I turned around to cry
It's for the better, right?
For you and I?
We trusted fate to play our game
But fate was not on our side
Catch a shooting star for me
I know you will remember
Forever and always it will be
