To my Woman

Roberto Suárez Torres 1983 (New York)

I will love you more today
as I do wake in the morn with bright eyes,
what will be for it to bloom I cannot say
no more than human hands have on the garden plot in the sky.

to sail the seas and never to find
caught in the glimpse of a bleak boat,
the whistle into the mist that gleams and cozen as waves the night shines,
and I sink into your heart, gripped, softly, with faithful hands both.

when orchards in your wild heart rowing
the kiss on my cheek cold, silence, and tears,
taste, a pair of pears that throughout the night showing,
daylight coming, do I, yon with wrinkled lips share yours dew-drunk near.

ah! nameless grace,
what dreams your face.

    Damn man, you write so profoundly and uniquely it's hard not to be in awe. You seem to have an old soul like myself. It is reflected a lot in your writing. Brilliant piece here, Roberto.
