April is National Poetry Month



Perfect body
A scholars mind
Michelangelo would envy such a find
Beautiful smile
Always sincere
Whoever’s around wants her near   
Angels weep
Gods hides their faces
And lovers weep
Michelangelo would envy such a find
Perfect body
A scholar’s mind

“I’ve never”

I’ve never touched a dream so sweet and never will
So if it’s not likely why do I keep trying – still
I’ve never touched the moon and that’s not really likely
But I’ll keep reaching – just so you can bite me
I’ve never fell in love – but silly me I’ll keep on dreaming
Because what’s life if there is nothing to believe in

“Magic of Love”

Love is like magic and it always will be
For love still remains
Life’s sweet mystery
Love works in ways that are wondrous and strong
And there is nothing in life that love cannot change
Love can transform
The most common place into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace
Love is unselfish
Understanding and kind
For it sees with its heart and not with its mind
Love is the answer that everyone seeks
Love is a language that every heart speaks
Love can be bought its priceless and free
Love like pure magic its life’s sweet mystery
