I see you
In your night of anguish
I see you
In your cave of tears
I see you
In your veil of sadness

Soothing whispers in the midst of anger
Gentle embraces in the midst of pain
Steady vision in the midst of confusion
Patient belief in the midst of doubt

I am by your side
Not leaving this time
I am in your heart
For healing this time
I am for your dreams
In daylight this time

Candles flicker in the midst of darkness
Courage blossoms in the midst of fear
Water quenches in the midst of fever
Kismet reveals in the midst of love

I love you
No matter what
I love you
No matter where
I love you
No matter why

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.
