S Holland Poems

We search each other's eyes
For depth of thought.
We find feelings, real feelings
Of deep, warm love,

The brook is babbling,
'Let it go. Let it go now.'
Water under bridge.

The day is as romantic as the night.
With multicolored birds taking flight.
Kiss me in the brightness, in the light.
The day is as romantic as the night.

Many things can take away
The hope we have on earth.
The losing of a job, a home,
Disease, sickness, worse.

Oh, let us savor this beginning
So sublime,
And rush not
As excitement weighs heavily

Your laughter blew into my life
With swift surprise.
It spun happily around me,
Whirling with dizzy speed.

You really want to touch, you say.
Nay, don't take my breath away.
For breath is life, and must be breathe,
To sober think, and warnings heed.

My dog is just too big for me.
He runs and never walks.
When it's his time to picture take,
He never, ever balks.

I have not changed since we were young.
We used to run, and laugh at life,
And all was fun.
Now I'm busy in a tizzy,

The only time that I have peace,
Is out in nature, trees and things.
I sit in the morning and look about,
And wait for the early birds to come out.

I saw a touch of fall today.
It was the morning when I walked.
The coming season to me talked.

If you question my life today,
Ask me before I die.
Don't wait 'til flowers are on my grave.
Don't wait 'til you say goodbye.

I remember your ghost of a smile.
It flickered across your lips,
And your eyes followed suit,
Twinkling merrily

Oh, bleeding heart!
Oh blood so red and deep.
Why, oh why
Can't I keep this distress

Through the screen, and silent as a cat,
A puff of breeze nudges at my back,
As if to say, 'I want a whiff of that.'

Hovering near the Sunday evening fare,

I smelled that smell yesterday.
That smell of love.
That musky, dusky smell
Of rain-soaked leaves,

My coffeepot is my friend.
It's wonderful
In that he asks not
What I can give,

Gossamer wings they always have,
Like the one I saw today,
Perched on the balcony railing to say,
Don't just look, come out to play.

Like a butterfly let me alight.
Onto the flower that is your life.
Let me tread gently with soft butterfly feet,
So as not to disturb those before me.

Make your fun and happiness
Where ever you are.
Don't let cities and places make you,
Take you afar.

The Best Poem Of S Holland

Oh, How I Love You

We search each other's eyes
For depth of thought.
We find feelings, real feelings
Of deep, warm love,
Never dying,
But always trying to break free,
To come forth
And be the dream
Of me and you come true.
Oh, how I love you.
