Subtly Faint























Shadows paint so subtly faint
with heat on skin subdue
in the early afternoon
and melting into you
Lips remind of lighter times
in eyes adrift I sway
with each exchange a spark remains
to flame the dark away
Shadows paint so subtly faint
on curves of colored hue
in the early afternoon
and melting into you

In The Shadows Play























Shadows play in shades of gray
as morning comes to kiss
warming hearts and skin to spend
my every day like this
Sun to find these secrets mine
while light and dark do chase
and shadows play in shades of gray
upon her warm embrace
Painted love I'm dreaming of
as strokes of passion play
morning dew has found her too
as darkness lifts away
Fire ignite in heaven's light
to drive the dark away
as morning comes to kiss
and I too in the shadows play

Stars Romance























Thoughts to dance as stars romance
entranced in heaven's sway
soft and serenading
fade into the milky way
Eyes alive in painted skies
and mine too find their way
hearts apart as words depart
to sparkle now and fade
Aloft are dreams reminding
shining stars on heaven's skies
tiny prayers not yours but ours
like chances drifting by
Time just leave a moment please
and dare for one more dance
soft and serenading
as the stars afar romance

Summer's Stead























Gaze ahead in summer's stead
a brighter shade of night
seasons slide as time goes by
and hides her true delights
An eye to see with piety
a heart so wrapped ablaze
still with hope as time revokes
the fruit from youthful days
Like rust and moth and fury wroth
it seems we all decay
none foreseen a shine so clean
serene to soul persuade
Lying back as time exacts
a penance sentence past
moments falling from our lives
we'll never dare to dance
Still thoughts to sway in tall array
and play in heart's delight
to gaze ahead in summer's stead
a brighter shade of night
