Only Words of Love

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Silently sitting and dreaming,

in the purple twilight,

I think of our love

and all the years together that have flown.

I could sing you a song,

of love so very true,

but I’d sound crazier -

than June bugs in the summertime.

Grasshoppers make a sweeter sound,

so you see,

all I have are words -

to steal your heart away.

Come night or day,

your smile lights my way,

your eyes shining so bright,

always give me delight.

Only words to express,

all that I feel inside,

but I cannot chain you to me,

it must a real love be.

If you love me true,

I’ll never make you blue,

with you by my side -

life is a real carousel ride.

So accept my words,

of love that I offer you,

to make you see the truth -

as you look into my eyes the very soul of me.

With bated breath, I wait,

for your response,

then your passionate kiss,

makes me realize.

You really love me true,

a man of few words,

your actions speak instead,

you loving me, me loving you -

for all eternity.
