When Love Came

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


It came like a magical genie,

through a stream of smoke,

from a golden lamp,

like so many colorful butterflies,

flittering from flower to flower,

in the summertime when love came.

It filled my world,

with lovely music,

like a bee serenade -

on a lovely, sunny summer’s day.

It made me smile,

to think of your eyes so blue -

as blue as the summer skies above.

So many things,

it brought to mind

and I find,

that it gives my heart wings,

makes me want to fly -

with the birds up high.

Fly beside the white drifting clouds,

as they drift by,

it makes me hear old melodies,

that fill me with memories

and I can imagine,

the musical notes,

flying about me,

making me giddy with happiness,

so incredible is this unbelievable feeling -

the feeling that is love.

And when love signals,

that eternal parting,

it is never goodbye,

it is just aloha –

until the day we meet again.
