Maybe 1 (Free Verse Sonnet)

(for Annelize)

Maybe life goes like this
that somebody brings the world to a halt
for only you
when you do trust someone with your love
and then the pregnant night gets a new meaning
where I am now bringing these words to you
that something unknown, new of love stays with you
in this new joint seclusion
when you do believe that my love is sincere and intimate
with more meaning than what you have experienced up to now,
that there is much more to it than just pity
in a kind of bliss that you never really forget in the coming years
and maybe when trust and my integrity touches you
our love becomes resolute.
