My Winter Rose

The sun still shines, but not as when she’s near,
The songbirds sing, but not as cheerfully,
While in my eye an ever present tear,
Reminds me that she’s ever kept from me.
These arms that feel the emptiness of loss,
Must ache until her warmth provides their rest.
This soul must pine till love struck paths may cross,
And once again her lips to mine are pressed.
My love is like the sweetest winter rose,
That blooms despite a freshly fallen snow.
Her effervescent beauty glows and grows,
And changes every heart she comes to know.

Return my rose, my spirit to revive,
For in your love alone am I alive.

very nice, VERY.

* make a note...things to do...try to write a sonnet and make it look easy like David...
yea right...in my dreams (smile)

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

David2~
This is so filled with the image
of the rose ... I could almost smell
the lovely fragrance.
Nice job !
Thank you for the bouquet.

 I want to be the face you see when you close your eyes
I want to be the touch you need every single night
I want to be your fantasy
And be your reality
And everything between
I want you to need me,
like I need you.

David, this is absolutely wonderful.. I thoroughly enjoy myself each and every time I open and read one of your works.  If you haven't read much of Mike's work, you should venture into his posts.  I think that you two might just get along well.  Try this for starters. This is Mike's A Dozen Sonnets for a Rose.  Mike is much too unpretentious to invite you over himself, so I'll do it for him...

Erstwhile - Your work is absolutely great!!  More please??

David...this was a beautiful poem--loved the rose image here...I, too, know the pain of separation and you expressed it very well. Great job!
