Poems of Love and Loss

1.
When you
drink this tea
let it’s scent
recall this day.

2.
Emotional Blackmail
(My version of a poem by Blair Ewing)

For my art I charge no rent
for your space within my heart.
Nor do I pray God’s interference.
(Seek no ends, only soft words
between two friends I thought were close.)

And if my reasons won’t persuade,
plagued with error and tinged with rage
Lady, the blame is mine alone.
Let the error die on the page.

3.
He called her “First Snow”.
That was his pet name for her.
She swirled around him and made him smile,
and agitated his eyes in a good way.
She brought to his cheeks a rose red
and her every touch tingled.

4.
If she needs a kidney, I” give her three!

5.
She thought and thought –
his gray winter coat
fading into the
brown and bare branches

6.
Does it really
do any harm
to love another
from afar?

7.
Don’t go to sleep
my dear, my dear.
Watch over me
until I do.
