His Treasure

His calloused hands, soft

Caressing her loving cheek

She– his pot of gold

Greeting his broken body

With an understanding smile


His reason to live

Waits for him at long days end

Asking nothing more

Than to be loved as she loves

This he could never deny

For You

I bleed for you,

When you cry I cry for you,

Tears that stain my soul,

Not out of sympathy alone,

Not out of pity,

Not out of martyrdom,

But out of purest love

True and genuine.

Ingrained like roots buried deep,

Twisting, wrapping around my bones;

Without them I would starve,

Without you I would wither,

An impossibility.

We are sown of perfect seed;

Ordained by the universe,

Bound by what cannot be bought,

It must be grown,



Nurtured to maturity,

Protected until the end of time–

I am yours.

Draw Near

Draw near cherished one,

To feel you close nourishes me,

Feeding heart and soul

No greater love has there been,

Than that between you and I.

The touch, skin on skin,

Warm, soft, moist, us intertwined,

Locked, passionate kiss;

Bodies tight as we become one,

One heart, one soul, forever.

See You, Feel You

I see you–sights of you everywhere I go,

Awake, asleep, eyes closed or open.

I feel you in every moment of every day,

When I’m alone or in a crowd.

You my love are so ingrained in me,

Individuals–yes, but we are one.

We share a history and travel into one future,

Plotting course through this life.

Joys and sorrows, trials and tribulations,

All have made us who we are,

Made us stronger through adversity.

These are not to be regretted, but cherished,

Part of living the life we have been given.

Not one moment would I change,

Would I give back exchanging it for another.

We are who we are my love,

No more from this life could I ask.

I Think Of You

I think of you…

When I’m alone

In a crowded theater

Just before I close my eyes


I see you…

In the face of every stranger

Standing beside me in the mirror

Lying next to me while I sleep


I feel you…

When we are apart

When I caress a picture you

In my most restful dreams


Know I love you…

‘Til my dying day

With every fibre of my being

With every breath I take


Simple things to express the depth of my love

Never ebbing, heartfelt and passionate

Engrained into my soul

My soulmate, my lover, my friend
