Love poems

It is a marvelous achievement when married couples face all the challenges the world throws at them while continuing strong in their love and commitment for each other.

But there can equally be pain and heartache, as when a loved one dies or a relationship fails. I attempt to capture those feelings with several of the poems found on this page.

Though some of my poems are derived from personal experience, not all are autobiographical. Many I wrote for my wife, but several were composed to enter in poetry contests while a few are based on what I have observed in other relationships.
