And what shall I say for the words
escape my tongue running free from
their captivity in spirited whispers
while dancing on unseen vapors

For my heart speaks sulking silently
without understanding its inherent
fall from a life of only one

Now embracing this very new Intrusion
to its once lonely world yet so new
and refreshing, while I only try to
understand the reason why…

For there are no words that come to
my mind falling freely from my shy
heart speaking to this new love who
has revealed herself to my once lonely
world mastering my feelings, while
making me a slave to her pure living

Finding sweet moments now so alive
within a wanting wish while holding
on to a hope that my tongue may soon
be set free from its chains to speak
poetic phrases which will find a new
life power to dance in a union of
happiness with her

And I now begin to strike the precise
note along with the right melody
finding the best combination of words
that shall find the single true path
which leads to the heart of the one I
now adore deeply

Causing my written thoughts to bathe
deeply In her mind’s bliss, while
providing a heavenly light that will
illuminate those lovely brown eyes,
which have made my heart a willing slave
to her smile.

(April 1977)
