i could get lost

i could get lost

in the sound of your voice

lost in the song that you sing

lost in the dance of my heart

once again starting to dream…


i could grow younger

in the sound of your beckoning

younger in arms that embrace

younger in seasons of loving

in summers that never do fade


i could climb over obstacles

in the sound of your encouragement

climb heights making visions so clear

climb together in awakening splendor

if only, my love, you stay near….




Although I am not “in love” with any woman…nor is this addressed to any one woman, i wrote this after listening to Java Girl read Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 (http://www.landofblogging.wordpress.com). Somehow, it has inspired me to…this.







About thelostkerryman

Thelostkerryman is an author, entrepreneur, and disciple- this side of Tir Na N'Og- living in the forests of a consistently confused country. Here in this hill country, hurling doesn't usually involve a hurley, store-made soda bread resembles an inedible Irish megalith, and Kerrygold is only found hidden like a luck penny in the belly of Kroger. This blog is an account of his adventures, thoughts, eclectic -and eccentric- ramblings, random or insightful poetry, humor and non-humor, pictures (photos), video, essays, fiction, poetic fiction, nonfiction, drama, and writing he has not classified in the description above. All of my posts, thelostkerryman.wordpress.com, everydayasadisciple.wordpress.com, and mrandmrsboring.wordpress.com are copywrited according to international copywrite law.
