Sonnet 2: Oh my love, how I miss your morning smile

Unpublished pieces

Oh my love, how I miss your morning smile, 
That once so pleasured my tedious long day. 
Each word spoken by you a pleasant style, 
Of twittering grace and luminous sway. 
In all the words we spoke to the other, 
None pleased such as words spoken for our love. 
Each word so gentle, one after another, 
Which caressed me as soft as silken glove. 
But these are just shaking old memories, 
Of visions so easily pushed aside. 
Images that seek warm affinity, 
Of other words which denied our divide. 
These are my steady pictures of your eyes 
Which held me focused on you as my prize.
