Poetry by Jeff Green


Be mine.

I want to share the sunset with the owner of my heart,
Sing sonnets to the moon and sweetly sigh.
To dream inside a garden, where a tale of love can start,
And spend the night beneath a star-filled sky.

Then we could bless the daybreak as the birds wake up the world,
Together we could dream a brand new day.
We’d lie in silver sunlight, like two kittens closely curled
And hope that all our worries stayed away.

The shadows would then shorten as the sun began to climb
But still you’d keep me wrapped and close to you.
Two lovers in a garden can ignore the laws of time
And loving is the only thing to do.

So cast aside reality and live a dream with me,
To spend your life in love without an end.
I’ll be the king of happiness the day that you agree
To be my perfect lover and my friend.
