Harry Radcliffe Poems
Smile In Your Eyes
If I had the power at my command, I would carve you a snowflake in the palm of my hand. I would craft you a bed out of warm desert sands. But there is no way to show my devotion
I thought heaven was a place you went if you died, And yet I'm in heaven, when I stand at your side And I always keep listening, lest I hear your harp's strings When I put my arms round you, my hands look for your wings.
Usually with words I am spoilt for choice; But there isn't a birdsong that touches your voice. There are no earthy things that I can compare, The softest of silks cant describe your hair.
I will watch you spread your wings, And I will watch you fly. Away to bigger, better things Onto the rolling sky.
I keep all the photos, of the two of us together, Because photos never change, they stay the same, forever And I can look at all my photos, and I can look into your eyes I have seen each one before, so I am never surprised
Sand In My Eyes
No amount of time could be enough together, I just wouldn’t be satisfied With infinity; or forever. I would have eternal life;
Distorted light and muffled sound, Snow is sprinkled on the ground. Nobody needs us, neither of us is pursued, Only the snow angels are allowed to intrude.
Smile In Your Eyes
If I had the power at my command,
I would carve you a snowflake in the palm of my hand.
I would craft you a bed out of warm desert sands.
But there is no way to show my devotion
Unless I weave you a dress from the tides of the ocean.
And by making these things my love would take form,
And I would give you a diamond from the ice of a storm.
And if I could forge you a mountain, raise it up from the ground,
Just by raising my arm, without making a sound.
Then from that day, would brush upon your cheeks:
A white-gold earring, from its snow-capped peaks. ...
