Would You Be Mine?

December 3, 2019

Joanne and Cliff ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Would you be mine
til the end of time?

Would you hold me close
taking no notice of how long a time?

Would you love me more than
Julius to Cleopatra or just as much
if not more?

Would the sweet scent of love
fill your nostrils evermore?

Leaving nothing else
to take your breath away?

Cause my love
I will love you forever
Ever, in this way.

Agonizing, Difficult Regret

October 8, 2015

Agonizing, difficult regret

Struggling to understand

Just what I did to regret

For no soft heart opens up

Or holds me close

Only solitude, loneliness

Are at my command.

Life of near and far away

Feels trodden upon

No joy to lift me up

No smile that helps me stand

Only agonizing, difficult regret

Struggling to understand.
