Rhapsody in Love is for those who want love as the principal in their life.
Love is an elusive emotion to which we all aspire. It taunts, eludes our grasp, yet capures us when we least expect it. It is obvious, it is subtle, it is a strongly felt emotion, yet it is undefinable. Love means different things to different people, but it is something we all want to receive---and give.
This book shares the many moods and faces of love, romance, and relationships. The poem "A Love So New" explores the sheer joy of the first blush of love:
.....How much joy can a heart endure
From a love so new, not yet mature
Sending us to new heights of ecstasy
Making even Heaven jealous, the love between you and me...
But when love goes wrong, even briefly, the unimaginable heights of pleasure can quickly become the deeper depths of pain:
.....Where lilies once grew is now thorns and thistles
The winds of destruction through them whistles
Carrying a sad song
Of where we went wrong....
Timeless, evocative, and touching, Rhapsody in Love: Love Poems, Whispers, Letters is for those in love and those still searching for love.
They say there are seven wonders of this world; I say this is a miscount because with you, my beloved angel, the total is eight.
Throughout my life I have always wanted a woman that I could really love, a lady I could be very gentle to, a true lover to make sweet love to, a friend to hold and cherish forever.
Beloved Angel, you have all the qualities that warm my heart through and through. I want to be your lover, I want to be your friend, I want to be your all and all, your everything.
They say a slave is not greater than its master. If I am a slave to love, then it is my master. They say a slave is devoted to its master. If that is the case, then I am devoted to love. If I am devoted to love and if I have that feeling in my heart toward you, then I am devoted to you.
Then there are two sides to the equation:
Beloved Angel + Sweetness = LOVE
I am a servant to love, then I want to be part of the equation above to have you, Beloved Angel plus your sweetness.
I want you; my arms and heart cry out to you. It is like a strange voice crying in the wilderness; a lost soul trying to get home.
Hear please, this cry of one who wants and loves you.
Your presence is a pleasure to the senses. Your voice is like a siren’s song that has lured seamen to shipwreck; your beauty transcends the stars of the heavens with their radiant beauty.
Beloved Angel, my sweet angel; give me a moment of your life. One minute would suffice for my love to sing its song and this serenade be my gift to you sprinkled with love dust from Heaven.
Wonderful lady, I am yours for all times. I live this life and dedicated my love to you.
