About the Book

Poetry: a language in and of itself, the universal tongue of the heart. At its core, there is a desire, a simple wish to communicate matters that are so deeply felt, the lexicon seems inadequate. That is the inspiration that magically and artistically combines prose, verse, personification and rhyme to deliver a profound message of love and romance. This book is a compilation of writings that stretch over a period of forty years - an anthology of the happy- sad, highs and lows of love. It is the “heart’s desire”- a heart in search of “true” love. Have I told you lately, how much I love you? This author delivers on that question with an assortment of poems meant for lovers - uniquely assembled, combining visual imagery with a medley of love letters and stories- a platform of beautifully staged romantic selections describing the ways of love that will enhance any literary collection.
