Paris 1949




Dream of the nights we walked alone;

Dream of the nights we talked alone.

We were there must we two – just me, you.


Our love was made in Paris;

We should have stayed in Paris,

But still we knew right from the start

We’d have to part.

You came, I saw –

I have to see you once more.


We will return to our Shangri-la.

Then we will be in Utopia.

Paris, our paradise.

No Words 1956

           No Words

No words can describe what I feel for you,

For words are but symbols that say and cannot do.

No sounds can describe what occurs when you are near;

For sound merely draws all attention to the ear.

Just eyes embracing are enough:

We kiss with our minds,

Thought intertwines,

This is the stuff of which dreams are.

No words can re-kindle the light that warms the sum;

For words only stop our souls from becoming one.

And now we’ll say no more, for no more need be said.

The road to love is straight ahead.

My Love For You 1953

            My Love For You


Life handles some very hard;

Others it treats with kid gloves.

I was placed in category number one

When it suddenly handed me love.


My love for you, to quote a cliché,

Came ‘out of the blue’

And now has me praying that you

Will quote that same cliché too.

My love for you won’t leave me alone;

Is there when I eat, sleep, travel or phone –

Please consent,

And take me out of this torment.

Love’s beautiful, love’s grand.

It brings ecstasy as nothing can.

But it’s awfully hard to bear

When it’s just a one-sided affair.

So, please tell me when

You’ll make me completely happy again

And whisper these words in my ear:

“My love for you is here.”

In The Space Of A Dream 1954

           In The Space Of A Dream

In the space of a dream you appeared to me.

In the face of a dream, you altered the course of my cloud,

All it took was a glance.

In the space of a dream life steered freely,

Losing trace of the scheme of the faltering force of the crowd.

Just one look, then romance.

First our eyes met; something found.

Then our lips: not a sound.

Then our minds, and we were bound

By eternity.

In the space of a dream life had cleared a path,

And in place of a dream there was you.
