Clear Sailing


The sunny breezy ocean winds

raced playfully across the seas today.

And beckoned us to navigate,

to some perfect place without delay.

We charted the course, set our sails and

jaunting skillfully we cruised away.

And on this voyage that we’ve set about,

our hearts, with heated passion,

lovingly while away the day.

You Have to Know


Perfect days they were when you were often on my mind,

so beautifully appealing with your fascinating eyes.

Your irresistible smile and laughter

kindled intensive intrigue and encouraged faithful ties.


Everyday from across the way

your exquisite face shone bright.

You had to know

that I would think of you

most every single night.


Your heart felt always close to me,

then life got in the way.

Some unexpected heartache came,

but in all truth,

you, I could never blame.


And now from across the table

we catch up and remember when.

You had to know

that I loved you so,

even way back then.


Our lives have sped so far ahead

to a content and welcome place.

Any pondered paths not taken,

there’s no need

for us to trace.


Imagine a ship across the ocean

that faithfully sails back home.

You have to know

that I’m anchored close,

and my heart shall dare not let you go.

Tropical Destination


Excursions, please stay awhile, no hurries.

Diversions, sights that delight, few worries.

Steamy night, soft southern breeze, love prevails.

Dreamy daze, as your eyes tease, our ship sails.


Navigate, full steam ahead, we explore.

Fascinate, white orchid scent, hearts implore.

Surging tides, romantic beach, perfect port.

Merging lips, my love in reach, cool resort.
