Here are two of her poems;
Look at me with eyes of love
Wipe my age lines with vanishing cream
Gaze upon me with all my flaws
As if I'm still the young girl
Of your dreams
Let me gaze on you with eyes of love
Wipe away the tears you're loath to shed
Let our eyes make love with fond contact
Praise heaven we met, here we are dead
The hair grows scarce around your greying pate
With love's fingers, I fondle my lover's head
Soft and fuzzy my feelings glow
On the fringe of divinity lovers wed
Wipe away hard years with candid tears
My love my life my friend my guide
Kiss my soul through lips conduit
Eternal groom to your dewy bride.
Let's walk outdoors towards old haunts
Fields, woods, and copses
The old ice-cream stand
Kiss me tender kiss me blind
Forgive age's onslaught, true love is blind
The world spins around chasing its elusive tail
Lovers heal it with happy ever after tales
We hold hands and stand over the bridge of time
Sweet contract signed in heavenly climes
This love will never break our hearts
Pain will always be its part
In hope and trust, this truth, we accept
Grace was shared in our faithful pact.

Moon, shiny silverback rodeo rider of lofty clouds
Trapeze artiste extraordinaire swinging from quantum pearls
What spooky entanglement have you with my heart?
Even Cupid cannot compare in casting his darts.
God allowed Selena such playful moods
In serenity, she enveloped the earth
Brought hope to yearning human hearts
Made hearts homes where lovers meet.
Soaked in moonshine, zephyrs flung the magic dappled net
Sylvan silhouettes glimmerings over the foliage
Dense and dark, almond-eyed, the moon gazed
Ripped a hole through time and space
In my eyes reflected fervent sparks
Prayers uttered with an ardent heart.
Keep us close may this love outlast time
May closed eyes spy each other in Siamese dreams
Moonlit chimeras be gold-hued angels bold
Let nothing distract from this conjoined theme.
Keep my love keep safe from harm
O sister moon
Cast enchantment upon my arms
To hold and clasp his palms of gold
To connect and forgive, heal and believe
In contentment together as we grow old.
Let youth's moonlit madness charm old souls,
Still besotted with each other,
we make each other whole
Wild children of the night, moon befuddled souls.
Partake of me what you missed in you
Let me find the puzzle piece so true
From where our portrait slowly grew,
Climax in my joy, let it resonate
Our peaks of ecstasy, elevate.
Moon maddened, love’s incense sets us free
Tonight and forever,
My love, you belong to me,
I belong to thee.
Enchanted moon betrothed lovers, we.
