Poetry by Philip M. Williams

To Lovers
The Sea Of Love


Did you float upon the sea of love?
So vast and limitless, unlike the briny deep?
Did you feel the warm sun not burn?
Did you rock on top, in warm companionship?
Did you learn not to fear?
Oh God I pray you grasped that instant grace,
And opened to theĀ  mortal heart so dear.
