    Oceanic Boundlessness ~ a Shakespearean sonnet

    Laying awake upon drifting daydreams,
    Holding closely to thy pieces of gold
    Wast'd along some slow, shallow, low streams;
    With those lonely little tides to be sold

    Whisper gently as thou send rains to fall;
    Give me only dregless amounts of sand
    And grasp this voice dearly after you call,
    Chasing shorelines for years, finding no land

    Thine sun has fell within shifting blue seas
    Alone; making islands for thy sewn heart
    Strand'd near the quiet flow of a breeze,
    Whilst this lost love of yours now does depart:

    O, do not fret, for night shall bring us moons
    To rest; sleeping atop silver wash'd dunes

    Recollect when we drink from the
    Same tea
    And feast on the same meal.
    Recollect our moon light dream,
    When I call, you talk like
    Words are too small to express
    Your love.
    Recollect when we hold hands to
    The store
    Beside that leveled lawn
    To buy your favorite toys,
    Recollect how I admire your voice
    And your coiled dreadlocks
    That makes me rejoice.
    Recollect whatever the offense
    I always forget, and wouldn't
    Even comment.
    Recollect when you told the
    We where best of friends without
    Full stop
    Recollect as I shared your tears
    When I also wept
    Inside the book shop.
    Recollect as my lips pampered your
    And whispered into my feelings,
    Recollect the avenue we first
    You wore this avocado green
    With that black skirt, and
    Looked exactly as my princess.
    Recollect that very song that
    Made your eyes melt,
    Recollect when my shoulder
    Used to be your head rest.
    Please Recollect,
    You promised to be my jewel.
    Today, you push your face to the
    And destroy my name inscribed
    On your chest,
    Will I ever see you again?
    Where on earth will
    I meet your blend?

    Would you still be my friend?

    When You Walked Away

    I view life through a broken heart
    It broke the day we finally part.
    But as I tried to say goodbye
    I felt my heart begin to cry.

    Then instantly I felt its pain
    It shattered when you walked away.
    The tears began to fill my eyes
    There's nothing left but our goodbyes.

    With no more reasons left to try
    You walked away and left me lies.
    The thoughts of you throughout the day
    Now brings my broken heart such pain.

    It's jaded now and filled with hate
    Held together with some tape.
    My heart is scared and not the same
    It shudders when I hear your name.

    You've slowly beat me down with time
    And dimmed the light I used to shine.

    Stronger Than Cancer, Bob

    I felt different, a little tired
    worn out, ill here and there
    visit the Doctor, did some test
    took some picture, waited for the results
    A spot in me started small, got bigger
    Time will tell, not a good sign
    here came the shock
    the bad word no one wants
    but I take it stride cause i can beat it.
    I am strong, I have will, the power to go on
    my new slogan Stronger Than Cancer
    no one will beat me down
    I will grow old, see my boys grow
    see them wed, see their kids
    I will not give, , no matter when
    Stronger Than Cancer
    hope will rally, cures to be found
    Meds to take, no fakes
    I will survive, fight for life
    pain will never go, mind so strong
    prays needed, prayers answered
    the fight never ends, I will not bend
    till the end. I am Stronger Than Cancer
    Thanks Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Mother
    for the love of me.I will survive
    Strong Than Cancer, Bob

    poet. He was one of the main figures of the second generation of romantic poets along with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, despite his work only having been in publication for four years before his death.

    Although his poems were not generally well received by critics during his life, his reputation grew after his death, so that by the end of the 19th century he had become one of the most beloved of all English poets. He had a significant influence on a diverse range of later poets and writers. Jorge Luis Borges

    I write, but it will never be
    As beautiful as a pond, cloud, or tree
    Men can make wine with the aid of a grape
    Honey is produced by a bee
    Mother nature molds the elegance of flower
    Poems are made by fools like you and me
