Sings to the dawn of your heart,
Soothes the nighttime;
Softy meandering the rivers of your soul.

You are my love, truest love, and the centuries
Fall away in your arms.

We are young again!
Did we ever really grow old?
Forever young in our hearts, now one again,
Now as this final lifetime unfolds.

Still the song of the blackbird calls
Over the rivers and down to the lakes.
Twilight in our dreams, a magical time of love.

It is time to sow the seeds,
To plant the garden,
To shed our yesterdays in this beautiful breeze.

You are my only love.
O truest dreamer.
I would die for you!

For I am your blackbird,
forever faithful in my calling.
And every morning I am with you
And every nighttime too.

my place of dreams, inside
stars shine, reaching in,
deeply folding themselves
over like waves tumbling.
you are there upon a beach,
outside a house, a porch swing
and the seagulls swoop the air.
in there, sweet singing,
joy and love in equal measure.
one is the other, in silence
both are the same.

Lifetimes With You

One day soon you will wake with me,
And the dawn shall know the love
Of a thousand mornings tumbling.
i will take you in my arms and rock you baby,
Tenderly loving the depths of your soul.
For you deserve all the love in the world,
For your kindness and your Love;
For the centuries that have passed between us
And all the time that’s lost.
All will be a memory, accept the love that runs
Wild in fields and through forest clearings
And the sea, we Love the sea!
Whether it was in Pari, New York or Rome,
Australia or England’s shores,
With you everywhere is home.

Sex (II)

To be with you in the starlit evening
is to fall in love with you, over and over,
where the chimes of heaven rhyme
and the sacred moon shines down.
To make love with you will be blissful,
the things on which dreams are built.
In your arms i will surrender
to your tender heart.

I am so in love with you words will not do.
Forever feels like this, a kiss upon your lips.

What I Best Love About You

Every word you speak is like music to me,
Visiting the sacred spaces of my soul.
Every little thing you do sets my heart
Racing like there’s no tomorrow.
You are like a gentle breeze blowing,
The first thought at morning waking.
Home to me in every lifetime.
In my heart rooms beating true.
Now and forever i want you to know how
Grateful and thankful i am that you are my girl.

Wedding Day

In every lifetime,
In the sweetest summer
Or patchwork autumn,
You were there.
How i love you
In the morning,
In the afternoon
And nighttime.
All times are you,
In the silent rooms
Of my heart.

The Rain Grew Flowers

The clouds burst and from the sky fell rain,
and the rain grew flowers.
Flowers for you, a whole garden so beautiful
your heart filled with Love.

In your eyes welled the pain of yesterday,
and the rain grew flowers.
Flowers for a tomorrow so full of joy
that yesterday faded to a memory.

When i found you my heart spilled over,
and the rain grew flowers.
Flowers for the first morning we wake together,
and for the life we stay forever.

Now the clouds part and from the sky falls the sun,
and the sun sees a rainbow.
A rainbow for us, so beautiful we know
we have finally come home to Love.
