I Love You Mom

Though I have tried, in song, word and rhyme
I just couldn’t capture in the space of a line
How much I love you, how much I care
How when I need you, always you’re there
How the freedom you’ve given is the freedom I need
How you’ve allowed me to grow, having sown the seeds
How you give of yourself and don’t count the cost
How the love that’s been gained will never be lost
And never can I harness in the space of one day
All that I feel and all I could say
So you must consider each day of the year
As a celebration of love by the ones you hold dear

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.
