Before You~

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

Before your big brown eyes
My green eyes were always blue
Before the warmth of your arms
The cold of Seattle was all that i knew;
Before your great big Texas smile
That melted my beleagured heart
All that i knew were faces of sorrow
And moments that tore me apart;
Today, at home in your brown eyes
You make my green eyes just glow
At home in the warmth of your arms
Forgotten, 'tis the cold of Seattle of so long ago;

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed


It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;


An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
