New Life & Other Poems

 

New Life

All these words come from somewhere
And that somewhere is you
Who gave new life to my heart.

All these words come from somewhere
And nothing is more true
That you’ve given new life to my art.

All these words come from somewhere
And I mean them all too
Because you’ve given new life to my art.

All these words come from somewhere
And they’re all meant for you
My words, my life, and my heart.
 

Forswear It, Sight

I’ve seen the fields from mountain tops
Under skies of unfailing blue,
But all the things that I have seen
Are not as beautiful as you.

I’ve seen a robin on a rose,
Petals glistening with silver dew,
But all the things that I have seen
Are not as beautiful as you.

I’ve seen a thousand ruby lips
Full lines that nature never drew,
But all the things that I have seen
Are not as beautiful as you.

I know you won’t believe these words
But every single one is true
Nothing new that my eyes could see
Would be as beautiful as you.
 

Leaving You

Leaving you makes me feel so alone,
Like someone turned off the sun,
But you’re in the whistling wind at night
And in the way that raindrops run.

Leaving you is the hardest thing,
Like someone ripped out my heart,
But you’re in the blood pounding in my veins
And in the song that the dawn birds sing.

Leaving you is the sudden frost,
Like a shiver straight down the spine,
But you’re in the moon and the distant stars
And watching you I can never be lost.

Leaving you makes me feel so alone,
Like someone turned off the sun,
The sight of you is the air I breathe
And the smell of you is just like home.
