Pete Patterson – 2 poems

JE T’ADORE

Rhythms beating, hearts entwined.
Emotions giving flight.
The flutter of wings touching.
Twin feathers floating.

Gentle winds drifting.
Never to part.

Eyes wear scars, reflecting:
Blue hope twinkling:
Dreams of tomorrow bring rain:
Diamonds falling from trembling lips:

Gentle winds drifting.
Never to part.

One single kiss on her forehead:
One single touch of her hand:
One single glance of her eyes:
One single breath of her sharing:

Gentle winds drifting.
Never to part.

SHE SAID NO

She said:
Come see me in the springtime
The winters here are much too cold.
She wants to show me
All the places where she goes.
When I asked her
If I could fall in love with her
She said No.

So I look up into the sky
And I wonder the reasons why
I have a gypsy soul and a heart meant for leaving.
Has love passed me by, and I ask myself why
Can a man like me ever be able to change?

So I am waiting for warmer weather,
Wondering if she will ever,
Ask me to come see her again.
Should I call her, on the telephone?
Should I forget her, and continue on my way?

She said, come see me in the springtime,
The winters here are much too cold,
She wants to show me
All the places where she goes.
When I asked her
If I could fall in love with her
She said No.

I said:
If it is cold there in the winter
Could we spend some time together?
Will you let me hold you, and keep you warm?
She said no.

What can I say, what can I do?
There is no place for love to ever grow
We will always be friends, to the very end
But somewhere along the way, what we had
Was blown away in the winds that say no.
