On earth nothing comes out of nothing.
So where does love come from?
Do time, planets and circumstances bring
or beget from the cosmic dust, love?
From cosmic dust in destiny’s womb.
Does it always come from above?
The love that makes our lives worthwhile,
even if now and then it changes its style.
It is the only thing worth living for, even if,
in some lives it comes only once and no more.
(From Is love something? Poem)

During his lifetime, Rod Berg Schonenberg was a devoted high school teacher who documented his life experiences and penned hundreds of poems in five languages.

In a volume of poems shared posthumously by his daughter, Mr. Schonenberg reflects on old and new loves and all the complications and joys that accompany relationships as two souls intertwine and attempt to find a way to move forward in life together. Throughout his presentation, Mr. Schonenberg reminds us of the true beauty that lies within the heart and the hope that can be found even during the most challenging of times.

My Father’s Poems -English- Volume I shares poetry penned over a lifetime that provides lyrical insight into all that comprises loving another.
