Part One Love Poems

I will Love you until the end of time

I will Love you until the end of time

That is all I need to say

That is all that there is

Nothing but love in my heart
Waiting for me to say it
And for you to believe it

In the beginning of the world

In the beginning of the world

I saw you there
Walking off that bus

And that was the beginning
Of my life with you
And the end of the rest of the world

Love Cherita -I Married the Girl of My Dreams

I married the girl of my dreams

First dreamt of her
Back in 1974

Eight years later
she walked off a bus
and into my life

It All Began in Berkeley, California

It All Began in Berkeley, California

in the spring time of 1974
one fateful afternoon

I was nodding off
in my high school physics class
And saw her in my dream

I Looked Up

I looked up

and saw a tall, beautiful Asian woman
standing looking at me

She was the most beautiful women
in the universe to me
I screamed out, who are you?

She Disappeared

She Disappeared

like she was beamed
away from my dream

I knew that moment that someday
I would meet the girl
In the dream


Little Did I Know

Little Did I Know

I would have to wait
eight long years

Until 1982
to meet her in reality
when she walked off that bus

Starting that month

Starting that month

I began having the same dream
Month and month and month

Always the Same Dream
She was saying something
in a strange language

Then one day

then one day

I had the dream
and knew that she was in Korea

I Knew She Was Waiting for Me
I chose to go Korea
In the Peace Corps

Somehow knowing

somehow knowing

That I would meet her there
and I looked for her there

for three years
I looked everywhere
and never found her

One Day I Had the Last Dream

One day I had the last dream

It happened in the morning
A year after the Peace Corps ended

A month before I planned
to leave to return
to the U.S. for graduate school

That Morning Early in the Morning

That morning early in the morning
I had the last of these dreams

This time I understood her
She said,

“걱정 마. 우리는 곧 만날 것이다. ”
“geogjeongma. ulineun god mannal geos-ida.
“Don’t worry.   We’ll meet soon.”

I Was Born Again That evening

I Was Born Again that evening

As I was getting off the bus
To go to my class

I saw getting off the bus
The girl in my dream
It was she!

I was Speechless

I was speechless

I did not know what to do
Wanted to tell her

How could I tell her that
Hey, you are the girl
I have been dreaming about

Over the Course of the Evening

Over the course of the evening

I ran into her several times
Finally, I was introduced to her

I muttered some lame excuse

About wanting to find a Korean tutor
and got her number.

My New Life Began the Next Day

My new life began the next day

The next day she came to the gate
Of my base where I was teaching

She said that she had to speak with me
I told to wait in the library
for about an hour

I Would Cancel Class

I would cancel class

and meet her then
We went out for coffee

She told me that she was madly
in love with me
And simply had to have me

I Told Her I Felt the Same Way

I told her I felt the same way

I proposed five days later
And got married one month later

Does she believe this story?
She claims she does not believe it
Because it is impossible to be true

But I Know That There Are Other Worlds

But I Know That There Are Other Worlds

In a past life we must have been together
somehow our love was so strong

That it crossed over
the barrier of past lives
finding me in this life

She found me in 1974

She Found Me In 1974

But it took until 1982
For us to actually meet

And it has been 35 years
Since we met in the physical sphere
Or 43 years since the dream began

And I still recall the dream

and I still recall the dream

I had no choice
when  I met her

we were fated
to be together
until the end of time

End Dream Cherita


Morning Delight

Every morning

When I wake up
And see your face

The sunlight of your love
Fills my heart with deep contentment
And all is right with the world

Best Love Cinquain

She walked off that bus that day

Never Ending Love story

 First Kiss

They say you always

remember forever
the first kiss of your life

it happened to me
back in 1967
In Washington DC

the first time

I kissed a sweet girl
I was eleven years in age

It happened in a class project
We were inside a fake space ship
And shared a French kiss

Kissing Angela in the Bar

My first kiss
With my lovely wife
Occurred in evil Itaewon

We went to a bar and drank a lot
Started kissing asked to leave the bar

Angela Cherita

I have dreamt of you

For almost seven long years
And now you are here

What can I do about this
Only thing to do love you
Until the End of Time

Thank to all the gods

For bringing you in my life
I will love you

For we are fated
to be together
From now to the end of time

Angela  Haiku

To the love of my long life
And say Thanks to God

Skinny Valentines

Every day
Every lover


Faces of all of my ex-lovers
All around me
Coming at me



Everywhere I look
Seeing my wife’s face in the sky

Shape of Sex

Sexual desires
Have a strange way about them

Arriving unannounced
Perhaps overwhelming at times

Erupting out of nowhere
Seriously disrupting my day’s plan


Glowing light of the dawning sun
Lights up my dismal room
Overwhelming me with love
Watching my dream girl sleep

Angela (Acrostic poem for Whispers)

Angela is my life
No better friend in the universe
Greatest Love of all
Every Day I thank God
Love of my life

Love of my long life
Everything I ever desires
Everything I ever needed

On Top of the World

on top of the world
looking down
on all of  creation

beneath my feet
what a wonderful world
this is

as long as I have you
by my side

There is nothing more to be said

There is nothing more to be said

Nothing more I can add
Nothing more than this

I will love you
Until the end of time itself
and death does us part

A Message for You

A message for you

Love comes with the sunrise
a message from God himself


from the universe itself
in the eastern sea
Showering love rainbows upon you

Love Endures

Love Endures

the longer I live
the more I learn

that nothing endures in life
other than the love
I share with you


In 62 years around the sun

I have learned a few things
About life and the universe

The most important thing in life
Is to have a successful love life
That is all one needs after all

Spring Doositsu

Waking up seeing you there
Watching you as you wake up
Fills me with such sweet desire
Overcoming my mind

I sit watching you all day
Thinking of you all day long
Wild erotic imaginings

Love making to come
That old blues song come to mind
I just want to make love to you
I just want to make love to you
Nothing more than that that

I end this morning with this thought
You are still the most wonderful
The most beautiful creature
In the whole universe

Love Triclinia

One Summer Day

Love Hexastich

for you
of you
for years

into my life

Love Sestet

into my life that day
the day that changed my life
when you became my wife
and filled my life with love
that date I met true love

Everything  I Could Ever Dream

My Dove
my dream girl
like a white pearl
she appeared to me
everything she could be
My love came to me in a dream
she was everything I could dream

Dreaming of You

of my love
she came in a dream
Haunting me for eight years
then she walked out of my dreams

“What Dreams May Come “ from the Movie

Meeting You

I often think
what would I do
If I could go back
and change my past

the one thing I would still do
is meeting you

8 Years of Dreams


Dreaming her eight years
one day she really appeared
walked off a bus and into life


There is always one more time

There is always one more time

There is always a second chance
For love and happiness

In this dark world of ours
We will find each other
Til the end of time itself

Best Friend for 55 years 


I have known Robert S since the first grade
over 55 years sharing life’s journeys
introduced me to demon rum and weed
Was there when I dreamt of my wife
and there during my 14 operations

My Memory Bank

Matt and I met in Latin class
in the 9th grade
he managed my first election
as BHS president

He knows most of my secrets
and reminds me of my past misdeeds
keeping me humble and alive

Best Friend in the Universe

I met my best friend, my soul mate
in a dream in high school
eight years later she walked off a bus
and entered my life 35 years ago
Still, my best friend I ever had

Part Two Pain Poems

Fake Pain Haiku version


I have fake pain all day long
Don’t know if it is real

Magazine Bonsai Haiku

Living with Pain Hanibun

Back in 1996 I had the accident that changed everything.I went jogging one morning. It was dark outside, and I thought that I knew the trail. I fell down a ledge hidden where the trail should have been. I shattered me heal in a million pieces. I was rushed to an ER and told that I needed n emergency operation and would be bed ridden for four months. My wife was in San Antonio at the time serving in the Army, I was in DC working for the State Department. I flew in a wheel chair to San Antonio where they proclaimed that they had to wait a week for the swelling to go down before they could operate. The Air force doctors wanted to try a new procedure – using shark cartridge as a bone supplement. The operation was a success until I quit taking antibiotics six months later. I was in DC by myself then. I went to the hospital for an unrelated thing -removal of a cist I think. But the doctors took one look at me and proclaimed that the staph had become a multiple drug resistant staph and I needed an urgent operation. The next day I had the third of 15 operations. I endured six months at Walter Reed hospital but that was in the 90’s prior to the wars of the 21st century filled the base up. They had few customers and I got to know the doctors well

I know pain
Intimately aware of every ache
Every pain

Ever since that day
When I went under the knife
And had the 14 operations

That saved my life
But I am not one to complain

I became one with the pain
Which I endure to this day

Knowing that I am alive
Having cheated death
Twenty times in life

Waiting for the grim reaper
To finally claim me

But that day has not come
And until the, I will endure.

Hiking the Hills of My Youth

I grew up in Berkeley, California in the 60’s Ever since I was a youngster I would wander the hills of Berkeley hiking for hours by myself and sometimes with my friends

I explored every nook and cranny every corner of the hills and got to know nature in its infinite beauty

Ever since those days I have longed for the day that I could spend my days hiking and wondering the hills

Now that I am retired and living in Korea I can go for a long walk in the hills every day I want

It is not the same as the hills I grew up, no vistas of the Bay and it is in Korea to boot but most days it is sufficient as I head out early afternoon and conquer four or five miles of hills just enjoying that fact that I can still move and am still very much alive at age 62.

I grew up hiking the hills of Berkeley, California
Grew up knowing every corner of the hills
And the infinite beauty of the Bay Area

And now I find myself in a strange land
With time on my hands
I wander the hills above the airport
In Incheon Korea

And wander about here
and there Just being grateful

That I am still alive
And kicking at age 62

Note: oldest poem written when I was 16! in 1972


Satanic spirits all around me
Particularly late at night
In the middle of the night
Rapidly erupting everywhere
Infesting my very being
Taking over my very soul
Satanic demons of the night


Freaky sounds fill the air
Radio is on playing the music of the dead
Everywhere I hear the music of my doom
All around me I see my fate approaching me
Keeping me awake with cosmic dread
Yes the end time approaches

Looking at the Hidden Machinery of God

One day
I woke up
and found myself

in God’s hidden factory
watching the machinery of God

running the world
and realized

that God was indeed
the chief engineer of the universe

as I watched the machinery
of creation
creating the world anew
every morning

Endless Noises on TV

endless noise on TV
quiet on the path outside
peace in my soul

Dangerous Times Tanka

In dangerous times
we retreat to our corners
convinced we are right
everyone else is evil
everyone else must die

Dream What May Come

Dream what may come
Recalling past lives lived
Every fantasy comes to life
All night long
More nightmares to come
So many worlds to explore


Fate has a way
Always catching up
embrace your fate
on this date

Fate Endlessly dancing away
that is what’s up
at the end of the date

At dawn

For breakfast





looking at the hidden machinery of God

One day
I woke up
and found myself

in God’s hidden factory
watching the machinery of God

running the world
and realized

that God was indeed
the chief engineer of the universe

as I watched the machinery
of creation
creating the world anew
every morning

Jake’s Golden Shovel

A sense of cosmic unease hangs
coming over all of us silently
hanging in the purple
air that has turned crystalline
reflecting my moods in the sky


Political Rants

The Impeachment Trial


The Impeachment Trial
overwhelms me with dread
are we near the end

Recently I Learned That I am Part Jewish


Recently I learned that I was part Jewish
That was long rumored in our family tree
Never confirmed until DNA came again
But whether my Jewish ancestors lived
Or died in the holocaust I have not heard
Never again will we live through that pain

Neo Fascism Must Be Defeated Again

In this day and age of fake news
And neo fascism rising yet again

It is important to bear witness
To the undeniable fact
That the holocaust
can never ever come again

That is what we must vow every day
Never again


The Neo-Fascists Are On the March

By their champion the man in Orange
Whose racist mutterings have let loose
The ranting nutty voices of the right
Championing their god given right
To rule and regulate all
that they see


Panic attacks
comes over come me
always happen
when I turn on the news

in case
I hear our dear leader
constant chaos around us


The President of the United States
Republican Leader of the Free world
Uber ales nations
Muttering insanities
Preposterous Nonsensical tweets


Post Modern Leader
Uniting all the Russians
Triumphant against all enemies
Including the Great Satan
Nevertheless always living in fear
