She’ll Never Know

You don’t need to wear a crown
Or sip a crystal chalice
No diamond broach
Or gilded coach
To lead me to your palace

You don’t need to sweetly smile
Or grace a royal ball
No satin gown
Or trumpet sound
For me to heed your call

You don’t need to ride a steed
Or kiss a shining knight
No castle tower
Or magic power
To make me see the light

You don’t need a fairytale
Or Disney’s happy end
For me to see
You’ll always be
A princess and a friend

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.
