All I Ever Wanted

All I ever wanted
Was just to make you smile
How was I to know
There can be no smiles
Without the of crush of scowls

All I ever wanted
Was just to make you laugh
How was I to know
There can be no laughter
Without the salt of tears

All I ever wanted
Was just to share your words
How was I to know
There can be no words
Without the twist of fate

All I ever wanted
Was just to be your friend
How was I to know
There can be no friendship
Without the blush of love

All I ever wanted
I have received and more
And now I truly know
There can be no future
Without the dream of us

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
