Literature
Sestina for Paola
I waited all of my young years
I searched the world with longing eyes
A silent prayer in every breath
While aloud and lost were all my words
Dreaming of this and nothing else
The time when life would be perfect
And now this time, this moment is perfect
My reward for all those lonely years
Lying beside you and no one else
And seeing my whole life in your eyes
Giving my whole self through my words
And thanking God with every silent breath
And I feel the warmth of your breath
I trace your curves, all so perfect
A mortal shell can still transcend words
Eluding the poet for all his years
The simple language of loving eyes
Lips, skin, and everything else
With all my faults and flaws and whatever else
The way I strive but run out of breath
You only see me with proud eyes
And assure me that I am already perfect
I will grow stronger for the rest of my years
Having just once heard, and believed, your words
So I want the world to hear these words
I must carve them now in stone, or else
How will t

Literature
Ghazal for Paola
Gone are the fearsome flames, slashing, piercing blades of heart
Where once reigned despair within, now sits only gratitude
Lost are the anxieties, fits and flights of terror fancy
Fear flows not through these veins, I'm breathing only gratitude
Loss and loss, that future loss, fighting always dread foresight
But now I walk the dark road calm, singing only gratitude
I will not doubt, nor anger send, nor leave words soft unspoken
I will give my eyes, and she will find, in them only gratitude
I will not curse my stars, nor lament, the coldness of the depths
And as for God I have no questions, my soul is only gratitude

I waited all of my young years
I searched the world with longing eyes
A silent prayer in every breath
While aloud and lost were all my words
Dreaming of this and nothing else
The time when life would be perfect

And now this time, this moment is perfect
My reward for all those lonely years
Lying beside you and no one else
And seeing my whole life in your eyes
Giving my whole self through my words
And thanking God with every silent breath

And I feel the warmth of your breath
I trace your curves, all so perfect
A mortal shell can still transcend words
Eluding the poet for all his years
The simple language of loving eyes
Lips, skin, and everything else

With all my faults and flaws and whatever else
The way I strive but run out of breath
You only see me with proud eyes
And assure me that I am already perfect
I will grow stronger for the rest of my years
Having just once heard, and believed, your words

So I want the world to hear these words
I must carve them now in stone, or else
How will they hear them in a thousand years?
The monument outlives the breath
The written love is forever perfect
And forever free to all longing eyes

I will disappear into your eyes
And trust the future to read my words
Because this moment, here and now, is perfect
And I would not spend it with anyone else
I would not share any other’s breath
And this they will know for ten thousand years

For the rest of my years, you had my eyes
For the rest of my breath, you had my words
For who else, could have been so perfect?

I wrote this for my wife -- I can't remember how many years ago...
