SHE BLESSED MY LIFE

She blessed my life
When she came to stay
And I love her more
Each and every day
It would break my heart
If she went away

I WAS LEFT DIMINISHED

I was left diminished
When your light went out
It left a shadow on my soul
And my heart was left
As an empty vessel
By your absence

You now walk
In heavens light
Surrounded by Gods love
With angels song
On the scented air

As I sit cold and alone
In the home we shared
A place full of memories
Where once I felt so at home
Now I wish to be there no more
Reminded every waking moment
Of my cruel loss
So I sit alone and crave
The moment of my own passing
So our souls will be reunited
And we can be together once more

IN THIS AMPHITHEATRE OF HOPE

In this amphitheatre of hope
I've made a life for me
With the woman of my dreams
Made manifest for all to see

Like an object and its shadow
She is every bit a part of me
Our souls as one element
Infinitely joined for all to see

A WEDDING SONG (PROTHALAMIUM)

I stand alone
Yet among friends
I stand alone
In the sight of family

Hear the music?
Come ahead
Make me turn my head
Come join me

Stand beside me
Stand to my left
Become me
Let me become you

Hear the words?
Go ahead
Make me turn my head
Come join me

We stand together
Before our friends
We stand together
In the sight of family

Hear the music?
Hear the song?
Letís sing along
Come join me
We stand together
Alone no more
Joined as one
Before our God

PRESSED FLOWERS

Flowers picked fresh
In the meadow
Where love bloomed
And a kiss was stolen

The delicate blooms
Were lovingly preserved
Betwixt printed pages
Of a weighty tome

Now they are desiccated
Between the leaves
Blooms long since dried
Still evoke memories

Pressed blooms from
When love was young
Mementos of love
From a time long ago

Soon I was once again
In the meadow
Where love bloomed
And a kiss was stolen

LOVES FIRST STING

In my autumn days
I fondly remember
Loves first sting
And how my heart sang
Loves perfect melody
In loves sweet spring

SILENCE IN THE MEADOW

Silence in the meadow
As we lay amidst the flowers
Young lovers entwined
In the moonlit hours
When love is keenly felt
We succumb to cupids powers
But as night gives way to day
The love we feel is ours

I THINK TO MYSELF NOW THAT IT IS OVER

I think to myself now that it is over
As I pick myself up off the floor,
How could I have been so blind?
To lose my heart and so adore
The creature who can barely disguise
The blackness at her heartless core
