I hope that we can somehow still be friends
That this is not where our journey ends

I hope that as we are painfully torn apart
We have the strength to make a new start

I hope that we can find a way to forgive
Each other and ourselves as we learn to live

I hope that we find the happiness we seek
That we both discover a love we can keep

I hope and wish with each passing day
That in my life you’ll always stay

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.
