Love Is …

Love is making mistakes
And fixing them together
Love is raising the stakes
And riding out the weather

We’ll conquer the heights
We’ll cross stormy seas
We’ll defend human rights
We’ll walk for the trees

Love is taking what comes
And shaping it together
Love is twiddling our thumbs
And making fun forever

We’ll face off attack
We’ll march hand in hand
We’ll fight back to back
We’ll make the last stand

Love is building our dreams
And living them together
Love is chasing sunbeams
And never saying never

We’ll wish on the stars
We’ll camp on the moon
We’ll dance across Mars
To our own loony tune

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.
