Memories of you

Are like raindrops of forever,

So I sing and I dance

In this perfect weather

I don’t need an umbrella

I won’t search for the sun,

Because I wasn’t looking for love

When I found that you are the one

It rains in the morning

And it rains in the night,

You are the perfect storm

That has made all the wrong things right

If I dreamt you into life

Then I’ll sleep to dream of you again,

I’ll fall into an eternal slumber

If it means I’ll fall in love with my best friend

I’ll fall just like the raindrops

A millions times–never the same way twice,

I’ll fall deeper than hell

And pay the ultimate price

I’ll fall just like the angels

For you–I’ll sacrifice my wings,

Your demon of desire

The passion for which your heart sings

And if forever is not enough

Then I’ll find another way,

To fall under your spell again

And dream about you forever and a day.



If I could play the piano

I would compose a ballad for you,

I’d bring heaven to tears

And dance with you in the rain…


If I could touch the stars

I would catch the one that fell for you,

I’d present it to you

And show you where destiny wrote my name…


If I could talk to the gods

In the language of the Fates,

I’d ask your sister Aphrodite

To intervene on my behalf…


If I could live on the edge

I would take the chance to die another day,

Even if that meant

I would incur God’s wrath…


If I could see in the dark

I’d search for your beauty between galaxies,

I’d find where heaven lost you

And hide you in the realm of my heart…


If I could write a poem with numbers

I’d calculate the equation where you and I are one,

In the language of the universe

There would be no division to keep us apart.

ROMANTIC MUSINGS: Your Dreams and Mine



I want to know your dreams

And the story behind your name,

I wish to understand your heart

And be the one to kiss away your pain

I want to wake up and kiss you

As we drift away from the stars,

I want to follow you into forever

Just to be where you are

I want to be in your thoughts

When there is a smile on your face,

I want to be your in-love

And in the comfort of your embrace

I want to be in your laughter

And be the one to kiss away your tears,

I want to be your strength

When you need to face your fears

I want to be your happiness

I need to be the hope behind your vow,

I have to experience your forever

And I long to be with you now

I hope to be the one you remember

When you forget what love is supposed to mean,

I pray my name lingers in your whisper

When you fall asleep and dream.



If I saw heaven in my dreams

Would you be my angel,

I’m a demon without hell

In the mirror I see a stranger

I no longer recognize

The man I used to be,

Perhaps that’s for the best

And for you – I have become

The best version of me…


The hopeless romantic

Who had lost hope in love,

Looks on with new hope

At the stars high above

Let them fall into my lap

As you gaze up at me,

I’ll run my fingers through your hair

As I relay to you

How I hope things will be…


Let every star represent

Each moment between us,

Let us gather the galaxies

Let us do this just because

You could be my moon and stars

You could be my girl,

If I saw a planet in my dreams

Would you be my world?

ROMANTIC MUSINGS: Story Book Romance

Book LoveThere was a time
When—for inspiration—I would sit and hark,
Trying to find the words
Was like searching for shadows in the dark
Somehow things have changed
It all started with your smile,
I need only sit in silence
For less than a little while
In these peaceful moments
Where I cling to the realm of sleep,
I dare not open my eyes
For it is you I may no longer get to keep
Yet you linger in my thoughts
Dancing at the foot of my mountain,
My muse at the waterfall
You bring the youth to my fountain
I drink from the waters
Of my imagination,
I savor the flavor
As you prepare the pagination
Your smile started the story
With the sunrise in your eyes—a look,
Until I close my eyes that final time
You may yet become my favorite book!


Truth is LoveThese words are yours

These feelings you inspire,

If this pen was the torch

Then you are the fire

The heat the intensity

That comes from your gaze,

Illuminates the shadows

And sets the pages ablaze

Pushing back the darkness

Where my vulnerability hides,

Luring me to your shores

As the moon pulls the tides

From the depths of my oceans

The emotions now swirl,

I come to you in waves

There is no other girl

Timeless, unrushed

I am bound by your night,

Where the stars that guide me

Are angels in flight

If I fell into your eyes

Would your angels catch my falling words,

And bring to your fire

The truth you’ve never heard.



I sit beneath the stars
I watch as they glisten,
I find comfort in the silence
It’s for your voice that I listen
Is my name on your lips
In the whisper of the wind,
I feel an angel’s fingertips
Caress me from within
Heaven reaches into my shadows
When I think of your smile,
Even though I know I must go
I tell myself to wait a little while
If patience is a virtue
Then for you I’ll be a saint,
I’ll wait until you see me
Even if my chivalry is quaint
Though if desire is a demon
That is captured in a stare,
Then I’ll be the prisoner of heaven
And surrender to your care
Do with me as you want
Do with me as you need,
I’ll even be your deity
And show you that a demigod can bleed
Pierce my heart with your arrow
Are you the goddess of romantic love?
If so, then you are also my muse
As I sit beneath the stars above.

ROMANTIC MUSINGS: Save the Last Dance


The preambles of love
Are an innocent dance,
The first steps found
When you are lost at first glance
The innocent poetry
Lingers on a whisper,
You have a memory from tomorrow
Of the night you first kissed her
The taste of her promise
Drips from her lips,
The elixir of heaven
You savor in sips
But that’s just the fantasy
And it doesn’t compare,
To the feel of her heartbeat
And the scent in her hair
She’s in your embrace
When you dance cheek to cheek,
She’ll become your strength
And the moment you are weak
With her in your arms
You’ll want the dance to last forever,
But in the beginning
You’ll merely be glad you are together.

ROMANTIC MUSINGS: Eternally Lovely


I picture you in the morning
As the sun rises behind my eyes,
Your smile awakens me
And my lonely soul flies
I linger through the heavens
I walk among the clouds,
In a sea of unfamiliar faces
You stand out among the crowds
There are mountains in the distance
Rivers, lakes, and streams,
Yet nothing leaves me breathless
As your beauty—or so it seems
Leave your whisper on my lips
With traces of your heart,
Breathe me back to life
Be the muse behind my art
I’ll picture you in the evening
When I sleep and close my eyes,
I’ll hold your smile in my dreams
The way the moon is held by the skies.



Could you be that poem
Written in the skies,
That song in my heart
Radiating from your eyes
The voice from heaven
When you decided to speak,
That echo of the Angels
That made my heart weak
That sound in the night
From a lifetime before,
You found my heart in the light
And left me wanting more
I crave your touch
And I crave your kiss,
I crave what I never knew
As the need I’d always miss
That smile I recognize
When I’m feeling sad,
I write you this poem
Because you make me feel glad
That I met you by chance
Or perhaps it was fate,
Even if destiny deemed
That I’d adore you too late
With your baby brown eyes
Looking at me from a distance,
I see you in my life and think
How did I miss this?
Your long curly hair
Wavy and brown,
If your scent was an ocean
Then I’d surely drown
I’d lose myself forever
In the depths of your sea,
And I think to myself
What if she had loved me?
Though even if you did
Would I be worthy of you,
Did you know your name means “gift”
In the ancient language—Hebrew
First used by Shakespeare
In the Merchant of Venice,
Now used by me
Because you truly are precious!
