The Kiss

your lifespan is very short,
But your lifestyle is exemplary,
With timing that is near to perfection,
There is never a trace

Learning About Love

Loving you has not been easy,
There were times when it was quite hard.
Good times, bad times,
I've seen them all in your eyes.

Permission To Mourn

All you asked of me was to be able to love you,
But this I could not do when forces so strong
Can turn love to hate. Was this then my fate
To watch you die, knowing it was too late.

Free Love?

Things may not be the same as they were,
And may never be the same again.
But the time was, when you looked into my eyes,
I heard your sighs, and I knew it could never be.


Dark evenings, unremitting rain,
Constant wind blowing.
My heart mourning the passing
Of summer, wistfully dreaming

The Faithful Daffodil

Early morning, spirits soaring
To see your promise of Spring.
Daylight dawning, showing
Green shoots that soon, very soon


Is it me you leave each morning
With face so plain and hair so free?
Do you really know who is me?
It is the receptionist who offers you coffee

The General

I approached you warily,
They said you were a creature of mystery.
You stood there like some Royal Majesty,
A coat of velvet hiding a will of iron.

Middle Class Housewife

This then is your life
A fully fledged stay at home wife,
How comfy, how warm,
Central heating at the stretch of an arm.


I love you Joanne, why?
Because you are what I am
The why, the where, the how,
All of these things
