My Letters

I see you found my letters
My bottle on the seas
At last they reached your shoreline
And whispered on the breeze
They hint at new adventures
And childhood left behind
They tell of magic mysteries
Of worlds you’ll seek and find

I see you got my letters
My reasons and my rhymes
I hope they’ll light the darkness
And comfort you sometimes
I hope they’ll find you smiling
Perhaps they’ll make you sigh
But more than that, they’ll always cheer
Your future, as you fly

I see you read my letters
My rainclouds and sunbeams
I hope they’ll travel lightly
In your memory box of dreams
I hope they’ll find you thriving
Perhaps they’ll touch your pain
But more than that, they’ll always show
Your strength to rise again

I see you kept my letters
My wishes and my fears
I hope they’ll find some echo
Of truth across the years
I hope they’ll find you happy
No matter your endeavour
But more than that, they’ll always say:
You’re loved by me forever

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.
