Cradled by Love

As you lie by my side
With your head on my chest
Our legs intertwined
My hand on your breast
The touch of your fingers
The smile on your face
The world is at peace
Everything’s in its place

As the candlelight flickers
Our senses caressed
The music enfolds us
Safe snug in our nest
The cares of the world
Fade away without trace
We are cradled by love
In the soft arms of grace

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.
