The Web of Love

We gather on the beach of life
With surf and sand and sun
To join a husband and a wife
As two hearts become one

We join you in the web of love

And as you journey on your way
Exploring far and near
You’ll always have a place to stay
With friends that hold your dear

We hold you in the arms of love

We gather in the maze of time
With twists and turns of fate
To mark this moment as sublime
The meeting of soul mates

We lift you on the wings of love

And when the storm clouds fill the sky
When rain and snow sets in
You’ll keep each other warm and dry
Until the sun gets in

We shield you with the hands of love

We gather on the isle of dreams
With blessings from beyond
From distant stars on silver beams
To celebrate this bond

We leave you in the lap of love

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.
