Poem: Departure

Love Poem New York Waiting

It hurts to think you may never know

How much love I feel …

Too deep to show.

My heart is full of love to last

My thoughts bring memories,

A cherished past.

While I do not want to let you leave

I’m happy for you and shall not grieve.

For time goes on and life does lead

A course for us to each

Love Poem: Remembered Kiss

Love Poem Dark
Love Poem: Remembered Kiss IV
by Tessa Saks

I am worn of love.
By the demands
that pull
my heart
away from my soul.

Their needs
passion and fire
and longing.

Am I their slave?
To give
until I break
the burden
of their desires.

Unable to fulfill
the never ending
selfish requests.

A fool disguised
mother’s love.

an emptiness
in the
of my heart.

The more I love
the more
it encroaches…
all the good.

Replacing it
hollowed hope…
for a deeper love.
A reckless passion
in my soul
release me.

Allow me to feel
the burning coals
of a lover’s touch.
A heavy embrace
the loneliness.

the life
that sparks
my glowing ember
of past love.

I want to rise…
by a kiss
that opens
the treasure
of desire.
Of consummate pleasure.

Awaken me.

the unyielding joy
now captive.

Open my heart’s dungeon
That deep love
of lovers
tangled in

The love I buried
A forgotten map
my true soul.
The one that needs
a long
embrace-filled night.

Cast free of
and unending.

Yielding to
your touch.
Forever yours.

Love Poem: And If At Last

Love Tessa saks 2
And If At Last
By Louise Labe
And if at last he drew me to his side
In hot embrace, for whom I waste away;
And if this sick necessity to stay
With him forever were satisfied;
And if he held me so and sighed,
Oh love, Let us be true, let such fatality
Join us as neither hurricane nor sea
Nor subtler turbulence shall ever move;
And if I held him bound upon my breast,
Frantic and ardent, as the ivies cling
About the mighty bough, and death should spring
Upon me: I offer all my breath
Upon his lips at last, and sink to rest.


Texture of life


by Pablo Neruda

Of everything I have seen,

it’s you I want to go on seeing;

of everything I’ve touched,

it’s your flesh I want to go on touching.

I love your orange laughter.

I am moved by the sight of you sleeping.

What am I to do, love, loved one?

I don’t know how others love

or how people loved in the past

I live, watching you, loving you.

Love Poem: When We Two Parted

Love Poem

When We Two Parted

By Lord Byron

When we two parted

In silence and tears,

Half broken-hearted

To sever for years,

Pale grew thy cheek and cold,

Colder thy kiss;

Truly that hour foretold

Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning

Sunk chill on my brow—

It felt like the warning

Of what I feel now.

Thy vows are all broken,

And light is thy fame;

I hear thy name spoken,

And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,

A knell to mine ear;

A shudder comes o’er me—

Why wert thy so dear?

They know not I knew thee,

Who knew thee too well:—

Long, long shall I rue thee,

Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met—

In silence I grieve

That thy heart could forget,

Thy spirit deceive.

If I should meet thee

After long years,

How should I greet thee?—

With silence and tears.

Because I Love

Texture of life

Love Poem

By Kathleen Raine

Because I love

There is an invisible way across the sky,

Birds travel by that way, the sun and moon

And all the stars travel that path by night

Because I love

There is a river flowing all night long.

Because I love

All night the river flows into my sleep,

Ten thousand living things are sleeping in my arms,

And sleeping wake, and flowing are at rest.

Discover Love

by Tessa Saks

The world is beauty.

You are beauty.

Love is beauty.

See the beauty inside all of life.

Trust it.

Allow it.

Do not think too hard.

Do not try to force it.

Open to it. Allow it.

Let it flow. Release love. Release beauty.

Open yourself to the possibilities of beauty.

It’s everywhere.

All around you.

Every day.

Don’t question.


Expand what is good—what is joy—what is love.

Send it out to others.

Share with others.

Your role is to give it to others.

Share it.

Be the light for them.

Be the hope.

Find ways to share it.

Allow it to flow from you to others.


Open your heart.

Stop the questioning.

Stop the analysis.

Just be.

Then do.

Be the love. Be the light.

Every day.

Inspire others to their potential.

Give the gift of love.

Give the gift of kindness.

Give the gift of self-discovery.

Your gift to them is to help them discover the beauty within themselves.

Help others to release their blocks.

Help others to see what beauty resides within all.

They are loved.

They are beauty.

They are joy.

Start small. Start around you.

Take the time for others.

Give what is inside you.

Be the light.

Discover the joy in others and you will be joyous.

Allow love to flow.

Be open to the possibilities before you.

Try new things.

Allow yourself to be open to new ideas.

Create a new world.

Create love.

Forget your ego.






Trust in yourself.

Give others hope.

Be part of the solution.

Let go of the problems.

Use your inner glow to guide others.

Be their light until they discover their own.

Be their love.

Be their compassion.

Be the bridge to get them to themselves.

Life is meant to be joyous.

Life is meant to be fun.

Life will have sorrow.

Life will have pain.

It’s the joy and bliss that erase the sorrow and the pain.

The sorrow and pain is there to remind you that you have a choice, every day.

A choice to embrace life.

A choice to destroy life.

In your sorrow and pain you destroy life. Your life, the life others.

Each person has the power to create bliss, to create joy.

When we’ve lost the way to joy we can stay lost.

We can get deeper and deeper into pain, into sorrow.

There is a way free.

There is always a way free.

Find yourself.

The inner self.

The deepest self.

There is only love.

There is only joy.

There is only bliss when you find your inner you.

Trust in it.

Find a path to it.

Find a reliable path to access it as much as possible.

Be humble and realize that you are only love.

That is all. That is enough.
